Description

From the top of these hills visitors can catch a glimpse of the Landro bay or inlet and beyond it Coelleira Island and Estaca de Bares. Here, during the early hours of the first Sunday in July, and after a traditional breakfast consisting of garlic soup, the horsemen begin to round up the wild horses to tame them in the paddock where they are then branded, their manes cut and domesticated in an impressive struggle. The festivities continue until night falls over the hills.
