San Xoán de Castro in Callobre is an event on the rise. Celtic rites, music and tradition are mixed in this peculiar feast of Saint John in which the neighbours of Callobre parade with torches lit with fire brought from the most mythical mountain in Galicia: Pico Sacro. With them the bonfire is lit at the top of Castro, always to the sound of drums and music. In the feast there is plenty of popular music and great grilled sardines.
