Near Death Festival in Spain Fiesta De Santa Marta
When & Where Near-Death-Festival-Spain usually takes place on July 29th in the town of Las Nieves, Pontevedra in Galicia; Spain.
What to Expect A lot of embelished stories, religous souvenir stands and of course Spanish brass bands, fireworks and celebrations. Anyone who has had a near-death experience climbs into a coffin which is then brought to the church Santa Marta De Ribarteme.
If someone is lacking in coffin-bearers they must shoulder their own coffin. After visiting the cemetary (without losing any participants) the Spanish mob returns to the church where a statue of Santa Marta is produced and worshipped. Offerings are bestowed upon St Marta for helping near death remain "near" only.
