Castalla Fiesta San Roque

The inland town of Castalla will be honouring San Roque with the traditional Running of the Bulls celebrations from the 12th to the 16th August 2017. There will be two special running of the bulls for children, when the youths of the town push wheelbarrows which have been decorated to look like bulls after them! Add to this the young bulls along with a number of cows will be released eight times into the narrow streets beside the Plaza Carreter, Plaza La Soledad and Plaza Casino.
