Los Gigantes y Cabezudos (Big Headed Giants) are traditionally for the little ones but everyone enjoys them
these days. They are very tall and very paper machèt and if you have never seen them before they can realy turn your
head. Not belonging to any one region of Spain, these curious figures make their appearence at most festivals. Even the
smallest of towns and villages may have their own "Cabezudos" and, being proud, each city, town or village will claim
that theirs are the biggest and best. It is up to the onlooker to judge for his/herself.
