FIESA 2009 this years theme: “DISCOVERIES”

FIESA is a mega exhibition of sculpture in sand held since 2003 in Pera, Algarve. The festival is unique in the Iberian Peninsula and is considered the largest festival of sand sculpture in the world by the size of its sculptures and the area they occupy. In each new edition the exhibition is devoted to a different theme.

FIESA 2009 is a space where the discovery, the encounter and fun, co-exist in total harmony with the art, providing unforgettable moments. FIESA is shown to the public every day till 22 October from 10 am to midnight (from 22 September to 22 October from 10 am to 9 pm).

Due to the heat during the day in the summer, I recommend to visit the Fiesa at night, beautiful lit, stunning! There is a bar for drinks and food, music and entertainment events. Nice for both children and adults.
