Beskrivelse

Baiona, in Pontevedra, celebrates this festival to commemorate the arrival of the caravel "La Pinta" in its port, bringing the news of the discovery of America.

In order to remember this important historical event, there are many celebrations in March. A real medieval festival takes place on the streets in the old quarter and in the nearby avenues, selling typical 15th-century crafts. Musicians, minstrels, jugglers and artisans provide entertainment for visitors.

One of the most relevant moments is the performance of the story that Martín Alonso Pinzón and his crew told the mayor of Baiona about the discovery, on 1 March 1493. Then the Baiona Gold Medal is given to people or associations who have worked to promote culture regarding emigration, with an official ceremony in which the representatives from the town councils of Palos de la Frontera (Huelva), Santa Fe (Granada) and Pornic (France) - which are twinned with Baiona - take part.
