Gegants (Giants)


For the last week in Vilanova it has been the Fiesta Major for the main town. (Each Barrio has its own Fiesta Major too). Displays, Fireworks and Parades have filled the days and evenings, often well into the night.

Some of the stalwarts of many of the parades and festivities here in Vng are the Gegants or Giants. They are well made structures in outsize human form and form one of the most traditional parts of the celebrations. Many towns around Spain have these figures and they all vary from place to place, but they usually represent feudal lords and ladies.
