Ciudad Rodrigo: La Charrada

La Charrada is perhaps one of the most impressive festivals of those held in Ciudad Rodrigo. A real spectacle founded on traditional folk music, costumes and dress. The festival has been declared of touristic interest in Castilla y León, and is the biggest representation and expression of Salamancan folklore. It always coincides with the festival of Holy Saturday (Sábado Santo), also called Saturday of Glory (Sábado de Gloria).

It mainly takes place in the Plaza Mayor, where folk groups gather from all over the Ciudad Rodrigo area, the province of Charra, and other points of Spain and Portugal. On this day every corner of Ciudad Rodrigo is converted into a spectacle, and it is not surprising to bump into people at every step dancing to the sound of pipes and showing off the colour of their clothes. During the celebrations, which officially start in the afternoon, a person or institution is awarded the Charra oak for their work for the music of Salamanca.
