There are usually a series of “fringe” concerts as well in and around the town during this week.
All the concerts are well worth attending, as the setting in the open air in the shadow of the Castillo de San Miguel, next door to the Roman ruins, is truly magical. The concerts normally start at a civilised 22:30 in the evening, so there is time for a meal before taking your seats.
Full details of each act can be found on the official website, along with links to videos and recordings to help you choose who to see. Tickets per gig are priced at €18 advance, or €19.50 on the door – or you can buy a “bono” for all the sessions at €91.50.
