Excursion to the Tabernas Desert

If you want to see an unusual place, the Tabernas Desert is the right destination. It is a famous national reserve. The Tabernas Desert has one more informal name, the Almeria Desert, because of the close distance to the city of Almeria. It is a truly unique place. It has mountain air, but the temperature raises up to 45 oC in summer. Strong hot wind and extremely rare rains are also typical for the desert. People have started settling down in this region in the 50s of the 20th century. All buildings in the area have a cowboy theme – most of them were used for filming purposes. Nowadays, visitors can attend an entertainment park or a large zoo and watch interesting shows.

Notable celebrations and festivals in Spain

Hundreds of different festivals take place in Spain every year. Spaniards know a lot about arranging amazing and unique holidays. Locals are keen on having fun. One of the most unusual festivals is La Tomatina, held in the town of Bunol, 40 km from Valencia. After the special signal from the Town Hall, a real battle begins in the streets. Participants throw ripe tomatoes in each other. In total, about 100 tons of tomatoes are consumed during the holiday. The event ends with folk festivities, dances, and fireworks. In the city of Ibi, a similar festival is held before the New Year. Armed with eggs and flour, local residents go to the streets. Participants are divided into two groups.
