Santa Tecla 2006

When: 22nd – 23rd September 2006
Where: Sitges ( See event listing for locations)

For those of you who missed Fiesta Mayor (Shame on you!), you now have a second chance to experience the truly captivating atmostphere of a Sitges Fiesta. The exposicio de Santa Tecla is also known as the mini Fiesta Mayor. For those of you who don't know, Tecla was a woman know for her virtue.

However most Sitgeans don't let that get in the way of having a great party. Expect lots of fireworks, noisey bands and the usual street parades. The last big event of the Summer, make sure you try and take in the atmosphere before it disappears for another year.

See the Santa Tecla listing on GSG for a full Calendar.
