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.

Very close to Santiago: Padrón

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.

Thousands of people gather on this special occasion in Padrón’s festive calendar to enjoy, completely free of charge, this delicacy and run the “risk” of experiencing the truth of the old saying: “Os pementos de Herbón, uns pican e outros non” (Herbón peppers, some are hot and others are not). It was in this Padrón parish that the plant of the Herbón pepper was first cultivated, after being brought from America by one of the monks belonging to the order that has been here for more than 600 years.

The event features the following programme:
- 10.30 am. Open-air mass.
- 11.30 am. Blessing and start of the festival.
- 12.30 pm. Reception for authorities in the Town Hall and a motorized agricultural parade as far as Padrón.
- 1.30 pm. Reading of the opening speech by an outstanding personality and appointment of Knights and Ladies,... read more
