PILAR DE LA HORADADA’S town fiestas will be doubly special this year.

Last year there were no celebrations nor were new fiestas queens elected, and those chosen in 2019 have continued in their roles until now.

But this year the fiestas will be held as in previous years and they will be presided by Aitana Saez Punzano, representing the municipality’s children.  Her name was chosen at random from those of five candidates hoping to become this year’s Reina Infantil.


In contrast, Almudena Ramos Albaladejo, Reina Mayor 2021, was chosen by a jury.

Pilar de la Horadada traditionally elects a third fiestas queen, Reina del Ausente who represents local residents now living outside the town, with this year’s title going to Clara Martinez Romero.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
