Vall de Boí

Where the Pyrenees touch the sky

Festivals and events

This is a traditionalist valley with numerous ancestral customs. 

In the rural world, festivals are closely linked to the agricultural and solar . To pull out the fire, a symbol of the sun, from the mountains and bring it down to the village serves to purify the fields and forests, as well as to purify the population and preserve it from evil spirits.
The board of trustees of Vall de Boi’s council, together with the guild of livestock farmers, shopkeepers and the owners of tourism businesses of the valley, has recuperated Barruera’s Annual Market, a tradition that had been lost in the forties.
