Mostra do Encaixe de Palillos

Did you know that Camariñas lace makers have become one of the icons of Galicia? Thanks to the municipal schools of Camariñas, Camelle, Xaviña and Ponte do Porto we can enjoy the demonstrations of the “palilleiras” and know how to manufacture fabrics, intertwining threads on a pillow and a pattern.
The fashion shows of great designers stand out, as well as the newcomers’; where they can present their work.
In addition, at the “Mostra do encaixe de palillos” you can also take a trip through different traditional Galician crafts in which Camariñas lace was applied.
We recommend it!
Feira do Queixo do Cebreiro
April 19 – Pedrafita do Cebreiro
Do you know the Queixo do Cebreiro? In case you haven’t had the pleasure yet, it is a cheese of Galician origin, made with pasteurized cow’s milk and has a protected designation of origin.
The fair starts at 9:30 a. m. and ends at mid-afternoon. During the day, visitors can enjoy the tasting of cheese and typical products of the region. The day will be livened up with parades and an exhibition of traditional dance. At 13:00 hours, the opening speech will be read by Mr. Manuel Lolo Aira, CEO of AMSlab.
And there’s more! An element that cannot be missing in any Galician party is the octopus, which of course will be in the different stalls in the area.

Do you like cottage cheese? You won’t be able to resist this fair!
In As Neves, this party is celebrated. Its main attraction is the cottage cheese, accompanied by the best honey or if you prefer the red wines of Rubiós.
As we have already mentioned, no Galician party can miss the octopus “á feria”, in addition to the chorizos al vino, and of course the music of the land, accompanied by the desire to have a good time.
