ARDE LUCUS, A CITY BURNS IN FIESTAS HALFWAY THROUGH JUNE EVERY YEAR SINCE IT GOT TO TWO THOUSAND YEARS OF AGE

Pretorian Guard

Lucus Augusti, which means “the grove of Augustus”, this is the name that the ancient Romans gave to the city of Lugo. A city that is proud of its past, of its culture and its history.  Every year just before summer comes it is transformed into a city of the Roman Empire. With its camps, its markets, parades, circus spectacles of all sorts.

ARDE LUCUS lasts for a few days only but it is well worthwhile looking back twenty centuries into the past and to integrate oneself into the multitude of more than a million people who come to transform and enjoy day and night the atmosphere of another time, of another world.

Come and join us!
