Coinciding with Holy Week, the festival features free concerts in the city’s monumental churches. Medieval “cantigas” along with baroque and Renaissance masterpieces coexist with the spiritual tradition of different cultures, religions and continents, performed by renowned ensembles and artists, often for the first time in Spain.
An event declared a Festival of Galician Tourist Interest that receives an important number of visitors from all over Galicia every year. This festival was one of the first “filloa” (crepe) festivals held in Galicia, being centred on an exclusively Galician product, just like other traditional products accompanying it (honey, chorizo…), although there are similar desserts in other regions and countries. In view of its age, we can determine that it originated as a genuine promotion of this characteristic Entroido (Galician Carnival) product.
