Neighborhood of San Lázaro

The ’romería’ of San Lázaro, a neighbourhood situated at the entrance of the city, on the Way of St. James, is both religious and gastronomic. The patron saint is honoured with a mass and a procession, in addition to an ancient tradition in which pig’s trotters are auctioned as an offering to the saint, 'Festa da Uña'. The culinary aspect is therefore based on pig’s trotters with cabbage shoots. As in all 'romerías', there is also an open-air dance.
