    The Parade at the start

    by rachel_sun Written Jul 25, 2005

    Ondara has a good selection of shops too and a few bars and restaurants.It is worth parking up and spending an hour walking around.I enjoyed going here and would go back.I hope to see many more festivals-fiestas etc in Spain in the future.Ondara is not a touist place at all.Just a nice pleasant Spanish working town.

    Jesus on the cross

    The drums were slowly becoming louder and we could then see there were children and adults walking along.As they got closer and closer I saw they were walking in a kind of hypnotic way.Quite a few hooded people slowly walked past and then they carried a staue past with Jesus on the cross.Many men had to carry the weight and they slowly went past us.Then more hooded people went by and the beat of drums changed.

    As we saw lot's of people in costumes all walking up the road we decided to stand outside.The bar was too smoky for me anyway.Some people had lanterns on long poles.People had these strange pointed hats on which completely covered their faces and long dresses or gowns.I then heard loud drum beats start up in the distance.We could then see people slowly walking along in the distance.They were swaying in time with the music taking small steps in time with the drums.

Ondara Local Customs

  • by Bernieh Written Jun 4, 2008

    Bullfighting, as a traditional Spanish custom, is very popular in Ondara. The Placa de Bous (Bullring) in the centre of Ondara is one of the oldest in Spain and easily reached from some of the more popular holiday destinations in the region such as Denia or Javea.
