Pilar Fiestas - Aragon
 October
 Popular Holidays in Spain.
Arts and culture in Spain.
These are the main annual fiestas in the regional capital of Aragon, characterised by a broad range of activities that fill the streets with fun, colour and entertainment for a week at the least. The programme brings together theatre performances, concerts, children's entertainment (puppet shows, clowns, magic...), shows, dance, bullfights, craft exhibitions, all kinds of music (from regional folk to pop-rock and electronic sounds at the Independent Music Festival) and many more events. There are also fireworks, the traditional "Giants and Big-heads" parade, sports competitions and exhibitions. The "peñas" (fiesta associations) also play a vital role at the celebrations, which get underway with an opening speech at the Town Hall.

The most important day is 12 October, the feast of La Virgen del Pilar, patron saint of the city. A mass Floral Offering takes place from early that morning: thousands of people from all over the world, dressed in traditional costumes, come to Plaza del Pilar Square to leave flowers before the Virgin. Meanwhile, 13 October sees the Offering of Fruit. And at dusk, the Rosario de Cristal takes place. It is a procession of carriages and glass lanterns that runs through the streets of Zaragoza



In October, Zaragoza celebrates the Pilar Fiestas
Three elements characterise the physical features of the region of Aragon, giving it tourist appeal and a historical personilty: the high peaks of The Pyrenees, the Iberian Cordillera and the biggest river in Spain, the Ebro. They have also been decisive factors for all of the Iberian Peninsular, and throughout Spanish history.
The Pyrenees in Huesca include some of the highest peaks in Spain, such as Monte Perdido, Les Posets and El Aneto, which in turn form valleys with striking physical characteristics, such as the valleys of Anso and Hecho. These peaks and other geological features make up the almost sacred beauty of the Ordessa and Monte Perdo national park.
