NOCHEVIEJA EN BERCHULES
PERIOD: August 04 2018
PLACE: Berchules, Spain
If for your misfortune, this year, you had lost the New Year's celebrations, do not despair: until August you are still in time to celebrate the new year!
No. I'm not going crazy. In fact, there is a small Spanish village where we celebrate the arrival of the new year ... in August. The event in question is the Nochevieja en Berchules.
No scientific calculation at the base. No alternative calendar. In 1994, the country remained without electricity on New Year's Eve and the citizens could not hear the traditional twelve tolling of the bell; so, they decided to postpone the festivities in August, with a Christmas atmosphere and the Magi. The initiative had an enthusiastic response, well beyond expectations.
Thus, from that day on every first Saturday of August, the New Year celebrations are repeated. After all, it is well known that the Spaniards love to party all year long. Imagine if they had any qualms about repeating any of them. At Nochevieja en Berchules, you will be in the company of over 10000 guests. You can have fun, party, and taste the typical local sweets. Obviously, wine and anise will accompany your evenings. Given the proximity to the beautiful Malaga, if you were to find here, do not disdain a trip to Berchules. You will not regret it. In addition to this incredible party, you will discover a really beautiful country; a beautiful village, nestled in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park. Then, celebrating New Year's Eve, in the summer, really has another flavor!
HOW TO GET
Granada and Malaga are two excellent bases for exploring the country, and the Nochevieja en Berchules. You can use the international airport of Malaga-costa del Sol, or, the small port of call Granada Garcia Lorca.

Who, however, wanted to use only public transport. Keep in mind the many difficulties to reach Berchules. We will have to get to Albunol; from here, in an hour by bus, you reach the resort.
WHERE TO SLEEP
Given the rather limited accommodation offer, it could be quite difficult to find rooms in the city. Above all on the occasion of the anniversary.
