Fiesta de San Sebastián

Top choice religious in Diriamba

The most remarkable of the fiestas patronales (saints days) celebrated in the Pueblos Blancos, this week-long folklore celebration blends pagan and Catholic elements with exuberant costumes and dance. Look out for the Güegüense dance that satirizes the indigenous people's first meeting with the Spanish conquistadors, plus the Toro Huaco dance, with its peacock feather hats and pre-Columbian roots.
