These fiestas in Sabiote (Jaén) are joyful, healthy and tranquil compared to many others.
After August 15th, the townspeople settle down for a well-earned rest by way of a simple
town fair. This means booths, food of all types, rides, competitions and general good fun.
The first day of the fair is begun by the traditional procession through town of the
oversized papiérmâched figures and heads (Gigantes y Cabezudos).
August 25th is the patron saint´s day during which a solemn and religious fiesta is
celebrated. The procession headed by the image of San Ginés from the town church
traverses through town.
The fiesta continues with a traditional auction of roscas and culminates with a huge
fireworks display, a farewell to the Gigantes y Cabezudos, and a spectacular sound and
fireworks show in the Plaza del Castillo.
