FEAST OF SAN PEDRO
This festival to celebrate the patron saint takes place from 28 June to 1 July. Each year a festival programme is created to include many leisure and cultural events, as well as shows, such as concerts, dances, and a drumming parade for the enjoyment of both children and grown-ups.
5 FEBRUARY, DAY OF SAINT AGUEDA
“Santa Ageda mutilak”, (those born in the same year), the young people who celebrate their 19th birthday that year participate in this event from the eve of the day of Santa Agueda until Carnival Sunday.
On 4 February they visit all the surrounding hamlets and, on the 5 February, they wander the streets of the district, singing and begging for alms.
PILMIGRAGE TO ATXORROTZ
This is celebrated on the 1 May at the shrine located on Atxorrotz Mountain.
Carnival starts on Thursday with the celebration of the “urdelardero” day. The word comes from Latin and relates to the significance of oil.
This festival is related to the consumption of pork and coincides with the time of the slaughter and the start of the vigil, a time when eating pork was forbidden, therefore, a time of preparation for change.
Traditionally, children went from house to house holding a stick (known as “Ziria”), which in the past was used to hang the food they collected on the way: chorizo, dry figs, bacon…, Nowadays they go through the streets dressed as baserritarras, or farmers, holding the sticks, singing and receiving sweets.
