Rites and traditions

Galician culture is rich in rituals. Water, stone, trees and fire are its main protagonists. In the VI century San Marti˝o de Durmio reproaches the Galicians for their paganism in "De correctione rusticorum":

"Lighting candles next to stones, trees, fountains and crossroads; what else is this if not devil worship?"
