Pilgrimage of the Wonders
Pilgrimage celebrated in the place called “El Santo” near Vilar de Vacas, in the honor of San Bartolomé. This place is the final part of a route that from the natural space of the A Pontenova River Park, located on the right bank of the Arnoia River, on the edge of the Ramirás town hall, runs through an abundant native vegetation with hundred-year-old oaks. freixos, solveiras, laurels, etc. .. It is also dotted with the remains of old mills and granaries.
At the end of the road, you can admire the remains of an old castreño settlement, distinguishing parts of the wall and the bases of the houses, on what is currently the Chapel of Sano Barlomomé.
Celebration day on August 24, moving to the nearest weekend.
It is celebrated since 1998 in the town of Nogueiró, in the month of May or June. It consists of activities related to the world of the horse and a popular nomad.
Days 4 and 18 of each month
It is present in the historical memory of our countrymen, who always got up very early to come to the Fair. In the early morning the foot arrived, some in the line car, with products of the land according to the time, with cattle …
The morning was of frenetic activity, of purchases and sales where the final price was never the initial price, where it was sold to be able to buy, where the countrymen fought with the professional dealers …
At midday all that activity ended in a good lunch to catch breath and return to the house, charged again with the purchases made.
Nowadays, the activity of the buyer is much smaller, and gastronomy is an essential part of the Fair.
From the first hour the boilers of the octopus smoke and the merchants set up their stalls.
The Fair became a day of meeting and quiet conversation, a day of profane worship of the rich octopus and our dishes (tripe, stew, prepared meat, cod …) that can be tasted in the taverns of the town, accompanied by a good wine from the earth; and at the end, the typical specialty: a glass of herbs or brown liquor.
In the market you can also buy the most varied products of the area: chickens, beans, garlic, honey, crafts, etc.
