As early as the 14th century, fairs are documented next to the now disappeared hermitage of Santiago do Mercado, and later next to the fortress. In 1487 the Catholic Monarchs granted Pobra de Sárria the benefit of an annual Free Fair.
Its heirs are the current and busy fairs monthly fairs on the 6th, 20th and 27th of each month throughout the year. FEIRA DO 6 (since 1890), FEIRA DO 20 (since 1820) and FEIRA DO 27 (1946). In addition to the flea market and the exhibition and sale of livestock, you can taste the “pulpo á feira” and other foods in several traditional stalls of “pulpeiras” installed in the “pendellos” and also in street stalls and in the village’s “pulperías”.
