The Semana Grande or Aste Nagusia (Great Week) is Bilbao's main popular festival. It is held every August (in the week of the 15th). It is not really an old tradition or something unique from Bilbao: just nine activity-filled days with music concerts, fireworks, food stands on the streets and lots of people and noise everywhere.
Loads of fun for people who enjoy crowds and getting drunk on the street and horror for the rest.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
