Celebrate historic St Aguenda's Day in Bilbao

At beginning of February the people of Bilbao take to the streets to celebrate St Aguenda's Day.

    MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, December 30, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- If there is one thing that the people of Spain know how to do it is celebrate and the country is known for its fiestas with vibrant music, dancing and plenty of delicious food and wine on offer.

The country's Basque region is no exception to this rule and there is one event coming up at the beginning of 2010 that may get people staying in Bilbao hotels out of their rooms and on to the streets to celebrate.

St Agueda's Day takes place on February 4th every year and may be the perfect excuse for a visit to northern Spain when the excitement of January and the new year is over.

This is one of the most historic festivals in Bilbao, which is the largest city in the Basque Country and the capital of the province of Biscay.

It dates back for many centuries and to celebrate, many choirs leave their practice halls behind them and bring their songs to the streets.

Visitors to Bilbao may really feel like they are taking part in a special and significant event on St Agueda's Day and they could even join in the musical groups, many of which are made up of children, as they sing songs to honour the saint.

People of all ages line the streets to watch these parades and many don traditional dress and costumes for the occasion.

If you're heading to the St Aguenda's Day event this year, we strongly advise that you book your hoteles Bilbao as soon as possible, given the huge popularity of the event.
