Queimada with incantation in Santiago de Compostela

tiempo 45m
idiomas Spanish, English
Enjoy the authentic Queimada, the typical traditional Galician drink, performed by reciting its own incantation.


As part of the culture of the city of Santiago de Compostela we find the Queimada, a strong alcoholic drink very present in the festivities and celebrations. The rite and incantation of the Galician Queimada is a magical tradition that is still performed today, of unknown origin, some say that it began to be popular in Galicia in Celtic times and others attribute it to the Middle Ages. At night, in the dark, by the light of the flame of the Queimada itself, an incantation is recited while stirring the alcohol with sugar with a ladle.

What we are going to do?

We will do the whole process to make the Queimada with all the typical elements. Once we have all the elements we will start the magical moment when the Queimada is set on fire. This is the special moment to start pronouncing the words of the Conjura that will help us to scare away the evil spirits and purify our souls. And, after the whole performance, we will taste the queimada.
