Santa Tecla – More fireworks, giants and fire demons.

This festival is a smaller version of the Fiesta Mayor! It is a big event for Sitgeans with the Church of Santa Tecla forming the backdrop of the key events. Expect lots of noisey fireworks and more of those crazy castellers as they make taller and taller human towers. Each afternoon and evening, mythical Catalan characters dance their way through the town in a full traditional folkloric procession which includes the Bull, Dragon, Devil, Giant and Turk Dances. The festivities culminate in a large fireworks display on the beach front on the 22nd at 11pm.
