There are so many festivals in Galicia that you could spend an entire year going to a different festival every day. Gastronomical, religious, traditional, historical, agricultural–you name it, they celebrate it. There are festivals celebrated only in a small village and ones that are celebrated in all of Galicia and Spain. These are my five favorite Galician festivals.
Galicia hides in its Entroido a symbolism and tradition which gives the holiday an almost religious meaning to its citizens and attract an increasing number of visitors every year.
It’s time for of the “peliqueiros”, “cigarróns”, “pantallas”, and other typical characters of a deeply-rooted tradition to take over authority in Galicia.
