From September 6nd to 8nd, the entire town rejoices and plunges into Caribbean flair. It is the time of a festival called Fira d’Indians in Begur.
From the 16th to the 19th century, Cuba was a Spanish colony, and there were quite a few Catalans, who went to find their luck at the other side of the ocean. They returned, having gained a fortune, and built the splendid houses.
In Begur, this bond to the Caribbean island is celebrated with a festival on the streets. The market, offering vegetables and other colonial goods, invites the guests to stay and buy some of them.
Cuban music and dances, colourful costumes and tasty Caipirinhas put everyone in good spirits, until the morning comes.
