The natural region of a Ulla features an original rural carnival, whose record goes back to the mid-19th century.

The most important characters are the "xenerais" (generals) and "correos" (dispatch riders) on horseback, who go around the parishes throughout the day, "cheering" residents and visitors, accompanied by an "army" of standard bearers, choirs and carnival groups.

They finish by staging an "atranque" or "alto", a dialectic confrontation in pairs, which is used to make fun of local, political or social affairs from the previous year.

The "Entroido da Ulla" features small differences from one parish to another, each of which has small defining characteristics that make it unique.

Adorned generals and dispatch riders make up the spectacular nature of this genuine expression of Galicia's traditional carnival.

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.

The queen of the festival and the traditional gastronomic product on Galician dining tables for more than 300 years is the “filloa”, also known in some areas as “freixó” or “marrucho.” It is made with egg, milk, water, flour and salt, mixing it to make a dough, a light and liquid cream called “almoado”; its great quality lies in the artisans skill to maintain the right temperature of the stones and of the filloeiros, where the “filloas” are made, and their thinness.

The “Xenerais da Ulla” is the most outstanding feature of the Ulla region’s traditional Carnival. It has been held in the surroundings of Santiago since the first half of the 19th century: the “Xenerais” (generals) ride on horseback, dressed in colourful military garments similar to those of that time, but they also include purely carnivalesque adornments, which the horses also wear.

The finery, of both the “Xenerais” and their horses, stand out due to their tradition, originality, colours and degree of elaboration, making them highly valuable.

The “Entroido da Ulla” (Carnival) originated in the first half of the 19th century and is based on the combats that took place in the region during that century: the invasion of Napoleon’s army, the 1846 revolution and the Carlist wars. Its main characters are therefore brightly coloured figures that recreate those historical episodes.

“Xenerais” and adorned dispatch riders make up the spectacular nature of this authentic expression of Galicia’s traditional Carnival.

In view of its great interest, in September 2013... read more
