One of the most rooted traditions in the recent past of Castelló d'Empúries is the celebration of the Cavallada organized by the Cavallista Group of Castelló. Equestrian groups from all over Girona, Barcelona and Northern Catalonia participate.
La Cavallada begins with the gathering of participants on the Hort d'en Negre esplanade. Then a popular breakfast is served and the parade begins, which runs through the streets and squares of the historic center.
One of the most crowded squares is that of Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer, where the blessing of the cattle takes place, in front of the portal of the Basilica of Santa Maria. Finally, the participating horses and carriages will be presented and displayed.
This year discover the Horse!
