VEGA DE LIÉBANA

Liébana is a land of traditions and popular fiestas transmitted through generations. In the region all those manifestations are kept alive, so that people celebrate, sometimes with joy and others with fervour, the passing by of the seasons.

The old romances sang in the winter nights next to a fire; the arrival of Carnivals; the "comparsas" and "zamarrones" (kind of musical processions) crossing through the villages; Easter processions and songs; open-air dances; fiestas in popular hermitages; traditional dances; the vintage and elaboration of the "orujo"; as well as the carols and gifts during the intimate Christmas nights, all conform an annual cycle, where traditions are lived in a very affectionate way.
