Another great spot, not to be missed, are the concerts from the balconies. Great artists on the national scene, such as Pastora Soler, Joana Jimenez (Esperanza Macarena) or Falete (Christ of the Gypsies), get together to sing from the balconies of the historical houses of the city centre. Sierpes road and O ‘ Donellla road are the very best places to see this incredible show.
