Xenerais da Ulla: Parroquia de Aríns

Xenerais da Ulla: Parroquia de Aríns

18/02/2012
[Fiestas]

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.
