Cebreiro in Galicia lies at an altitude of 1300 meters. 8-9 of September every year there is a catholic ceremony at the church in honor of the Virgin Mary. The Gallegos gather from all over the region for the event. Some arrives for religious reasons but many takes it as an excuse to party.. and oh my, they know how to party!
We arrived after a tough climb of 30 kilometers to Cebreiro conveniently the 8 of September.
The walk is over for this time, back home now, but still got a bunch of pictures worth showing.
