Festivals of National Tourist Interest



San Froilán


The Secretary for Tourism of the Ministry for Industry and Toursim, has listed San Froilán Festival as a National Tourist Interest event. This reflects the importance of this festival, a combination of tradition and modernity.
These are the most beautiful fiestas that take place in Galicia in Autumn (from 4 to 12 October) dedicated to San Froilán, the patron saint of the city.

They have a long historic tradition, dating back to 1754 when a royal decree allowed an annual country market at this time of the year. With the passing of time, this would turn Lugo into the largest farming capital in Galicia, attracting traders from all over the Iberian Peninsula, who wanted to do business and, at the same time, enjoy themselves.

The 5th is the day of San Froilan own. Missing the traditional agricultural fairs, the date is today essentially festive, with large numbers of visitors, and it also concentrates the religious celebration.

At Domingo das mozas (Young Ladies Sunday) parents allowed their sons and daughters to come to the festival.
This is nowadays a day for wearing traditional costumes and listening to Galician music. It is now common that people from all over Galicia to come and enjoy having pulpo á feira (boiled octopus) at purpose-built stalls on the fairground at Rosalía Park. There is also a large choice of cultural and musical events.
