Variety of Cultures,
Educational activities and festivals
and traditions are an outstanding feature of the Two Worlds United Study Destinations. They usually
begin with a high mass followed by a solemn procession in which venerated images
are carried on the shoulders of the participants. Music, dancing, poetry, and
singing often enliven these colorful occasions. The fiesta at Valencia, the
April fair in Seville, and the San Fermín fiesta at Pamplona or the processions
of Italy and France are several of the more important social caractarestic. In
contrast, the feast of Corpus Christi in Toledo and Granada and the Holy Week
observances in Valladolid, Zamora, and Cuenca are solemn affairs. The bullfight,
an important part of Spanish tradition, has been called a fiesta brava.
It is far more than a mere spectator sport; fans applaud not only the bravery of
the toreros but their dexterity and artistry as well.
