In Spain we celebrate during the summer, specifically in the village of Ortigueira, located in the province of La Coruña, Galicia.

The international Festival of Ortigueira, the identity of the Celtic people

It was created in 1978 as a handicraft festival thanks to the Escola de gaitas de Ortigueira, but without official support was interrupted for more than five years. Later and since then has not stopped surprising so much by his artists, the Chieftains or Alan Stivell, and by the effort to provide all kinds of services.

A festival in which the good atmosphere and the magic are breathed by all Ortigueira and also by its surroundings. The streets are filled with animation, music and people from all over the world willing to enjoy the most.
