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.

[Celebrations]

The Spanish Group of World Heritage Cities celebrates today the 40th Anniversary of UNESCO’s World Heritage Convention under the theme "World Heritage and sustainable development: the role of local communities".

Celebrate it with us!

In 1960 an extraordinary event focussed the attention of the international community on protecting a historic monument: when the Abu Simbel temple was threatened by the construction of a dam on the Nile, 50 countries worked together to transfer it to an area safe from flooding.

Looking back, this was the first step towards the international community considering that some of the planet’s treasures are of interest to all men and beginning to think of ways of protecting them.

Twelve years later, on November 16, 1972, UNESCO approved the World Heritage Convention, which is aimed at protecting cultural and natural sites considered of exceptional universal value.
    
Today, the Convention has been adopted by 190 countries and the World Heritage List includes 962 sites located in 157 countries.

Very close to Santiago: A Estrada

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.
