Santiago and Santa Anna Festivities

Valle de Zaragoza

In the splendour of summer, when the hot weather in el Valle de Zaragoza makes the afternoons seem to have been created to enjoy every last ray of sunshine, celebrating a tradition brought from Spanish lands.

The 25th and 26th of July, are a real party for the inhabitants of the Zaragoza Valley, who recreate the exploits of the Apostle Santiago in defending the Spaniards from the “moros”, riding his white horse and not looking back.

Thus, while some ride their horses, northern music is heard in the village and the party is replicated throughout the houses of its people. Jaripeos and dances are performed simultaneously.

In the Alameda, the lanes for the horse races are placed in the shade of the trees. People get comfortable to have a good place and not miss any detail, because within the dates, is one of the most expected activities.

If you're visiting during the holidays, be prepared to try the discadas - a mixed meat dish - and chiles pasados with meat or cheese.
