The village of Burgo de Osma, in Soria, celebrates the Pig Slaughter Culinary Festival.
They recover an ancient tradition rooted in many of the region's rural areas: entire families would gather around a table to sacrifice a pig. This ancestral ritual – in which hams, black pudding, chorizos, sirloins and other cured meats and sausages were made by hand – was a social, bond-affirming day. The process is described and explained to the visitors to the village. After the slaughter and a tour of the Pork Museum, there is a meal made from pork and pork products. Folkloric groups, bagpipers and various characters provide background entertainment.
