Día del ajo de Falces.  
The relationship between Falces and garlic goes back to the 12th century when the townspeople, fed up of paying taxes for their crops to the marquis and the church, decided to introduce garlic. As it was a new item it was not subject to any kind of payment, quickly making Falces one of the most important centres of its production.
The day begins at 09:30 with dianas (music in the streets) by the town's pipers. A fair with traditional products then opens, including organic foodstuffs. There are also activities for the little ones and guided visits around the historic quarter.
The day ends with parades and an "Ajo-pincho" (garlic-tapa) served in the town's bars. Now you know, if you like gastronomy and enjoy being in the centre of things, you must visit Falces.
