Carnaval de Verín
Galicia town of Verin
12th February to 1st March 2
 
Ourense, Galicia

The Cigarróns, the masked figures make this town in the province of Ourense famous the world over for carnival fun and signifies all that is best in Galician carnival. Verin is famous for its waters and wines. This festival shows  Verin, Galicia respect for tradition and  also its love of liberty and the imaginative creativity of the modern age, irony and the peculiar sense of humour known as retranca that characterise Veríns carnival costumes.
The call for all the residents to join in, the famous Fai Antroido, is symptomatic of these festivals, one of the major dates on the festive calendar.
 
 
 
 
 
The Cigarróns, the masked figures typical of the Valley of Monterrei, seen by ethnographer Taboada Chivite as a mockery of the tax collectors sent out by the Counts who lived in the castle and ruled over the area. Gastronomy is an essential element during this period. Local delicacies include cachucha (pork head), androllas (cured pork meat), Galician stew and desserts such as orellas and filloas, all washed down with the local wines that are at their best at this time of year.
