fiestas el bierzoThere are many festivals and celebrations in El Bierzo where culture, tradition and gastronomy are combined: The Magosto is one of the most typical celebrations, which includes roasted chestnuts on fire, wine and sausages. If you like magical moments, we invite you to discover the Magosto. Another berciana tradition is the pig slaughter. The Entroide is a special "carnivalesque parade". The Pendones are also famous.
