Festival of the Near Death Experiences



Spain - Las Nieves, Vigo


From: 2016.07.29 To: 2016.07.29



Official website:



The Fiesta of the Near Death Experience is a celebration of people who had the near death experience and who survived. No joke. It is annually held in a small Spanish town of Las Nieves near the border with Portugal. The saint patron of Las Nieves is Santa Marta or “Saint of Death”, thus on the day of the fiesta people “who almost died” honor their town’s patron by narrating and sharing their experience. Another weird element of the festival is that the survived are expected to come to the festival in coffins and to be accompanied by their relatives. If you have a story of the near death experience or just curious about others’ impressions, you should definitely make plans to attend this fiesta.
