POPULAR “CASTANYADES”

POPULAR “CASTANYADES”

The  31/10/2015

Ordino, La Massana, Encamp, Pas de la Casa, Escaldes-Engordany ( ENC, ORD, MAS, ESC )


Different popular “castanyades” are held around Andorra on the last weekend of October.


The “castanyada” is a traditional festival with its roots in the principality, which like in other places is held around All Saints and has its origins in the celebration of an ancient funeral rite. Apart from the chestnuts (“castanya” giving the festival its name), traditional “panellets” (almond paste cakes) and sweet potatoes are eaten, accompanied by muscatel wine.

Join this year’s Popular “Castanyades”!

La Massana holds a whole series of activities and workshops related to “castanyada” and Halloween in the whole week leading up to Saturday 31 October, ending with a popular “castanyada” in Pl. de les Fontetes (9 p.m.) followed by a Halloween fancy dress contest!

Encamp and el Pas de la Casa hold their popular “castanyada” on 31 October in Pl. de Sant Miquel, and in the Church Square, respectively, at 7 p.m.

As every year, Ordino's Plaça Major is the stage for the popular “castanyada” on 31 October at 9.30 p.m.

In Escaldes-Engordany the “castanyada” is organised as always by the Association of Friends of Pont dels Escalls on 31 October starting at 9 p.m. and with a mobile disco until the early hours.
