It is a must to highlight the Danza de Arcos de Cariño, an arch dance with uncertain origin, it is a group of dancers carrying some coloured-ribbon arches, making different dances accompanied by galician bagpipe music. Originary formed by an odd number of fishermen, all men, it is integrated actually by women and men as dancers. They wear totally in white, with coloured-lace on left shoulder, carrying a coloured sash, of different colours, across from right to left and a flowered cloth in the waist. The dancer who goes first, called guide, is responsible for synchronized movements dancing with the last dancer, called line. These two dancers stand out of the others dancers because they wear a Manila shawl. It has been taken to another villages of Galicia, as for example Camariñas, by fishermen from Cariño who relocated to this village, settling down their tradition.
