Ancient festival based on the auctioning of pig's trotters as an affering to the saint. This one of Compostela's most popular and traditional festivals. It is followed the next day by the Pig's Trotters Festival, when those in attendance sample the pig's trotters auctioned on the previous day. After the auctioning of the pig's trotters, they are now coocked and accompanied by cabbage 'bertóns,' an exclusive recipe from this neighbourhood that is also available in different restaurants. There is also music and dancing in the evening.
The gastronomy festival par excellence in the municipality of Padrón, held on the first Saturday in August in the parish of Herbón. It started in 1978 and is now classified as a Festival of Galician Tourist Interest.
