Our Chronicles of Rasmia are restarted every year in the municipality of Urriés, in the Bal d’Onsella (Cinco Villas Region, Saragossa).
Giving a twist to the traditional cultural events, we have devised the perfect formula for visitors to actively integrate into the annual local celebrations, with dates in each of the 4 seasons. This tourist experience is designed for tourism in general with interests in history, culture and traditions.
Each visitor will have their own passport in which their participations will be stamped, so that, once they have gone around the sun, their experience in the Chronicles of Rasmia comes to an end.

Spring, Carnival celebration.
We begin the year at the beginning of spring with the celebration of Carnival, of the traditional carnival of the five towns and Urriés itself. The morning begins with a preparatory talk/workshop on what is going to happen. The typical characters of the carnival are explained; the Amortajau , which represents death; the Esquilón, dressed in skins and shears, or the Allaga, with gorse on their backs, and we add to the local tradition, painting their faces with ashes to go out at night to scare the neighbors and each visitor are given the material so that they can participate in the party.
Summer, the Cultural Days of Urriés
The next activity arrives in June (summer), the most important surely and declared Activity of Regional Interest and Best national active tourism product at Fitur 2020 , Urriés Cultural Days. A party with a central cultural theme, where everyone participates in clothes from the time of talks, street dramatizations carried out by the neighbors where the visitor is involved, gastronomy of the time represented, music, workshops, shows….
