CULTURE AND TRADITIONS

 

EL DANCE DE COSUENDA

The Dance of Cosuenda is a popular theatric representation with dialogues between pastors, Moors and Christians and fights between the Good and Evil (Angel and Devil). Romances and proverbs are recited and there are dances with sticks, swords, arches or ribbons, accompanied with traditional music.
It is one of the most complete dances in Aragón, although the tradition was lost in 1910, since the people who knew it had passed away, thus making it almost impossible to recover.

LAS RONDADERAS

Las Rondaderas is an expression of folklore that is typical from Cosuenda in which different kinds of feelings are represented.
In olden days, these expressions were brought to life in different rhythms, depending on the place, moment and feeling to be expressed, they were known as cantas, folías etc.
Nowadays, it is only preserved one day each year, known as the "fiesta de Quintos" or "Quintada", the first Sunday of February, although other spontaneous initiatives take place in the streets in certain moments, inside the houses, or in wineries.
