The Higantes Festival takes its name from the oversized papier maché figures that make it a spectacle of hilarity and entertainment like no other. Expect water fights, hot air balloons, and a variety of fairs to round out your days—and keep in mind that this revelry has been occurring in this form since the late nineteenth century.
