Beskrivelse

The origin of these celebrations in Lugo goes back to 1754. Since then they have become one of the most important festive occasions in Galicia.

From 4 to 12 October Lugo holds its San Froilán Fiestas, attracting thousands of visitors every year. Two of the days stand out especially within the festive programme: 5 October, with religious celebrations in honour of the patron saint, San Froilán; and the following Sunday, known as “O Domingo das Mozas”, which is dedicated to traditional Galician costumes and folklore. Over the course of these days there are a series of parades through the city, with "big-heads", brass bands, street markets and magic shows, juggling and street entertainment.

Children play a special role in the celebrations, with "San Froilanciño", a range of activities organised for the younger ones including traditional games, chess competitions, theatre productions and the International Puppet Festival, where you can see the oldest puppets in Spain. The fiestas come to an end 12 October with the Medieval Fair: the Cathedral square and the area around the Roman city wall are turned into a typical Medieval market, with an array of jongleurs, knights, demonstrations of falconry and traditional trades, and, of course, a medieval banquet is also held. In the evening, a stunning firework display brings the celebrations to a close until the following year.
