November 11

The feast in honour of Saint Martin of Tours, patron of Ourense, announces the arrival of the popular Magostos, in which groups of friends and family gather around large bonfires to roast the first chestnuts and try the new wine. The party lasts all day and part of the night, always seasoned with roasted sausages, songs and a final toast with queimada, evoking ancient rites of purification. It is common to celebrate the Magostos in the mountains surrounding the city, especially Montealegre, although the urbanites can always go to the big bonfire that the City Council organizes in the Alameda Park.
