san gines de la jara

San Ginés De La Jara

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.
