The Annunciation

Edificio escola deportiva

The Blessed Virgin of the Annunciation is the virgin of fisherpeople in Baiona par excellence. One of the most picturesque celebrations in the region is, precisely, the 9-p.m. procession around the town centre with the image. Streets and balconies are adorned with flags and garlands and, once the procession is over, a skyrocket show starts.

That day fishermen perform their 15th-century Sword Dance after the image of the Virgin. The Patroness celebrations last all the weekend long -Saturday, Sunday and Monday. This particular Monday is called "Old Ladies' Monday", as bagpipes are played for elderly people.

(Date: First weekend in August)
