This annual fiesta takes place from Saturday until Thursday of the 3rd week in October. It is a very traditional fiesta and is based around a horse fair. The horses and brought to Mondoñedo from all over Galicia, including off the mountains. This year on the Sunday there was a demonstration of horses doing 'tricks'.The main horse fair is on Tuesday and includes competitions and horse racing.
In addition to the horse fair the streets of Mondoñedo are packed with stalls selling everything from Octopus scissors to horse saddles and tractors. It is truly an event that has to be seen to be believed. As always there is music and food and the Octopus that you can eat in the 'restaurants' is famed for its quality. Try the Churrasco too (grilled Pork ribs).

Mondoñedo is about 20 minutes from Granero del Burro.
