50,000 snail feast



 – MORE than 5,000 people were drawn to Riogordo to enjoy the tenth edition of the Day of the Snail, an event which has been declared of Provincial Tourist Interest.


In Riogordo, it has long been a tradition to collect snails between May and August, especially after there has been rain. They are bought at seven euros per kilos, and there are some 15 families in the town who collect them to make a living.

At the event, more than 50,000 snails were prepared in the typical spicy sauce, and accompanied by 28 kilos of rice, also traditional in the town.


  1. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think
    that you ought to write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo
    matter but generally people do not speak about these subjects.
    To the next! Best wishes!!
