Declared a Festival of International Tourist Interest in 2007, A Rapa de Sabucedo is organised in the same way as the last five centuries.

The “Curro” is the most spectacular and dangerous moment: the noble fight between man and horse, without using ropes or sticks. In Sabucedo, you can only beat the beasts in a one-to-one combat.

Daytime is devoted to the beasts and travelling along the Vesacarballa waterwheel route. Night-time is reserved for enjoying the festival.
