Aspe La Jira

Every year the town of Aspe celebrates La Jira on the Thursday before Ash Wednesday. This year the fiesta will be held on the Thursday 8th February 2018.

The Aspe residents form groups or associations which include people of all ages known as Jiras. At 09:30 each Jira, dressed in their own distinctive costume, parade through the streets of the old town to meet at 10:00 in the Plaza Mayor. They then take it in turns to give a musical performance by playing a song that has to be original. The festivities last all day!
