Popular festivals in Benasque

Benasque has a rich cultural heritage manifested through its popular festivals and traditions.

One of the most spectacular festivals is the Fallas del Pirineo (torches of the Pyrenees), declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. They are celebrated on the night of Saint John's, also celebrating the summer solstice and a tribute to the sun and fire. Impressive visual effects are created, such as rivers of fire.

The Fiesta Mayor of Benasque is celebrated on June 30 in honor of Saint Marcial and the "Ball dels omes" and the "Ball de les donnes" dance are represented, where flowers and bread are exchanged to symbolize the devotion as well as the transfer of the responsability to organize the festivity next year. The festivities have their culminating point in the dance ritual and are, thus, an unavoidable appointment with pyrenean tradition.
