JULY. The As Pontes Patron Saint Festival is held every year in honour of Virgen del Carmen ever since it first started in the year 1741. In July every year there is a myriad of parades, culture and sports events, as well as open-air evening dancing featuring live music on traditional bandstands and gazebos.
Since 1904, the famous Romería da Fraga also takes place on the 25th of July every year, taking over where the Carmen Festival ends. The locals go to the River Eume Banks with their food and drink celebrating Saint James’s Day, Patron Saint of Galicia and Spain alike.
Moreover, there are the numerous local festivals organised by the different parishes making up the Municipality of As Pontes, stretching from early spring to late autumn.
