Virgen de las Nieves 2017 - Fiesta Programme - 4th - 12th August 2017


Virgen de las Nieves - Calpe Fiesta Programme 2017 | Calpe Online 24

"Calpe is fireworks and gun powder. It’s about festivals and tradition. Culture and art. Come and share this special festival in Calpe. The colour of fireworks will illuminate the city. Calpe lives and breathes its festivals."


The Virgen de las Nieves Fiesta is organised by the Festivals Committee to honour the patron saint of Calpe, the Virgen de las Nieves. Here the main figures are the queen and her courts, made up by four generations: children, junior, adults and elders. It has been celebrated in Calpe since 1940.
