See you in Cebreiro

Every year at September 8 around 30 000 people gather on top of the mountain in the Galician village Pedrafita do Cebreiro.

Some turn up for religious reasons but most of the visitors come for la fiesta. Transportation varies, quite a few persons walk as it is along the pilgrim route Camino de Santiago, some people go by car or bicycle and others take the horse.

The village is situated at the border between Leon and Galicia. At the church Santa Maria la Real you supposedly will find  the Holy Grail.. there where some people also commenting about a visit by the Virgin herself some time ago. Lots of saints and virgins passes by in these regions!!
