Arrival of the ‘Sacred Fire’

On Friday 22nd evening, we will have the arrival of the ‘Sacred Fire’ from the Pico Sacro (Sacred Peak), escorted by the Celtic queen Alda and her procession. This symbolic act, organized with the collaboration of the City Council of Boqueixón and the Association of Castro da Fervenza de Callobre (A Estrada), recovers the pagan celebration of the solstice with the achievement of fire by natural means. The torch will remain in Mazarelos at the disposal of those who wish to light their bonfires with it.

The procession will leave Carballeira de Santa Susana, in the Alameda Park at 10.00 pm, and will walk along Porta Faxeira, Rúa do Vilar, Rúa de Xelmírez, Rúa da Conga, Praza de Feixóo, Rúa do Preguntoiro, Cinco Calles, Rúa do Castro, Plaza da Universidade streets. Arrival at Praza de Mazarelos is scheduled for approximately 10.30 pm.
