SPANISH FIESTAS.

Spain is the land of fiestas or festivals. In every single city, town and village there is a festival of some kind which gets all the townsfolk out on the streets partying with their neighbours. In Madrid, an unusual ceremony called El Entierro de la Sardina (literally, the burial of the sardine) takes place. A large number of people get together to observe a centuries old annual Spanish tradition of burying a dead fish. This popular manifestation was first captured for posterity and made famous by Spanish painter Francisco de Goya in an oil painting of the same name, “El Entierro de la Sardina”, dated between 1812 and 1819.
