The Xenerais da Ulla will take part in the Carnival celebrations in the district of Compostela.

The natural region of A Ulla features an original rural carnaval, whose record goes back to the mid-19 century.

The most important characters are the “xenerais” (generals) and “correos” (dispath raiders) 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 stanging 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.
