The “Xenerais da Ulla” is the most outstanding feature of the Ulla region’s traditional Carnival. It has been held in the surroundings of Santiago since the first half of the 19th century: the “Xenerais” (generals) ride on horseback, dressed in colourful military garments similar to those of that time, but they also include purely carnivalesque adornments, which the horses also wear.
On the afternoon of February 19, the parish of O Eixo in Santiago de Compostela celebrates its traditional carnival with the so-called Xenerais da Ulla perfomance, which involves a stagin where different characters take part.
