Festivals and fairs
Every Easter since 1981, Her Royal Highness Queen Sophia has presided over the "Mostra do Encaixe de Camariñas" (The Camariñas Lace Fashion Show). The event has become an internationally renowned cultural and commercial success and has been declared an Event of Tourist Interest in Galicia.
Since 1992, in July has been the date for this celebration of the famous percebes(barnacles) from Roncudo. During this day, the village of Corme is taken over by people from all over who come in search of this prized delicacy. The date of the Festa do Percebe has been carefully planned by the organisers. They check to see the moon phase around these dates to ensure that there will be extreme low tides in the three days preceding the event. This means that more percebes will be exposed on the beautiful yet dangerous rocks of Roncudo for the daring percebeiras (the people who collect the percebes) to collect. These are said to be the best percebes in the world. More than 1000 kg of percebes are eaten in the best way possible - accompanied by a bottle of good wine and a plate full of cachelos (whole cooked potatoes).
The romaría (pilgrimage / procession) to Nosa Señora da Barca, in Muxía, is one of the oldest and most important in all of Galicia. The Virgin does not offer protection from any specific ill, but her popularity is based on the fact that she grants the wishes of all those that ask in true faith. The festivities took place from the 8th to the 11th of September in 2017. The event has been declared an Event of National Tourist Interest.
Galicia has always been a land of religious festas and romarías (processions or pilgrimages). However, as the religious importance of these events has waned, many of the celebrations have been lost whilst others have changed with the times or been replaced by other, non-religious forms of celebration.
