Begur, September 7th, 8th & 9th 2012
Fira d'Indians celebrate the close relationship between Cuba and Begur, which has its origin in the emigration of many "begurencs" on the island over the nineteenth century. Returning to town, those who had prospered in his business, built ostentatious houses that still decorate the streets of Begur. They were the popular "American", which sought to recreate the lifestyle of Cuba and that left a different legacy.
The first weekend of September, Begur is transformed to relive that historic period that has left a deep footprint in our town and our identity. During three days Begur offers a wide range of leisure and cultural thread that is our past Indies.
