Autumn festivities in Extremadura

The countryside dresses up in beautiful golds and reds, but the festivities still go on in Extremadura.

The leaves are falling but the festivities go on

The countryside dresses up in beautiful golds and reds, but the festivities still go on in Extremadura.

The autumn landscape completely changes the colour of Extremadura, but not the rhythm of its festivities. The municipalities which make up this region leave a space in their calendar for some of the most representative events in the Extremadura tradition.

This is demonstrated by festivities of a religious nature, such as the Encamisá de Torrejoncillo, where devotion can truly be felt on the night of 7 December, and Los Escobazos, in Jarandilla de la Vera, where the town is lit up by burning brooms in honour of the Immaculate Conception, both of these events are considered to be Festivities of Tourist Interest in Extremadura.

This classification has also been bestowed on Magic Autumn in the Ambroz Valley, where the arrival of autumn is celebrated with an extensive programme of cultural and leisure activities throughout the month of November. Celebrations towards this season are hold as well in Jerte Valley with the "Otoñada" and Tajo Internacional with "Otoño de sabores".

But you can also enjoy the San Miguel de Zafra Fair, celebrated at the end of September, where the International Livestock Fair has become a global reference in the world of livestock breeding. Something of the kind occurs with the Literary Route of Romanticism, which takes place in Almendralejo at the beginning of autumn, and where this city steps back into the middle of the 19th century to pay homage to the Romantic writers.
