San Xoán herb workshop
Campo da leña Sunday 23

At San Xoan we connect to the age-old Galicia, the Galicia of witches and spells, the Galicia of bonfires and traditions, the evil eye and the herbs of San Xoan.

The workshop is an approach to this tradition in our collective identity, where we will make the bunch of herbs for San Xoan with traditional herbs; fennel, fern, adenocarpus, St. John’s wort, mallow, rosemary and mint, among others. We should leave them to soak all night long in water from seven fountains, and then the following morning wash our face with this herbal water, to ward off spells and the evil eye!

The workshop will be held on 23 June at 12:30 in the Campo da Leña.
