 Ribadavia (Ourense)

declared of National Tourist Interest and not to be missed entertainment in Spain.
Traditional festivals in Spain.
The people of Ribadavia in North West Spain celebrate the history of the region  each year with The 'Festa da historia' ( "Feast of History"). They create a medieval town with all it's atmosphere so that its traditions are not forgotten.  There are markets, local crafts, traditional foods, music and dance. The local festivals are the best festivals in Spain.
Every year on the last Saturday in August find out what it was like to be in Ribadavia in the medieval times. This unique fiesta recreates the medieval Jewish atmosphere of the village. An extraordinary celebration, dating back to 1693, is a major event in the village, with the vast majority of residents taking part. Ribadavians dress up in old costumes; knights and puppeteers fill the streets; there is a representation of a Jewish wedding, and master craftsmen offer their wares in a street market. This trip back to the Middle Ages is so authentic that on this day the currency used is even the old Maravedí.
