The origins of Santiago Espirituano date back to the 18th century. It is claimed that immigrants from Santiago de Compostela brought to these lands the custom of paying homage to their Patron Saint. The oldest document referring to Santiago dates from 1823; Such is the age of this festival that is part of the most authentic roots of the spiritist.
In the stage of the pseudo republic, Santiago was the most important cultural activity that was carried out, and received official and commercial support. It was organized about forty days in advance, in a process in which the people participated decisively. Santiago has always been the scene in which the spirit tunes, the points and other expressions of popular culture have been enriched. Typical foods such as taitabus, frangollo, catibía, black pudding, and other dishes diversified our cuisine. The passage of the centuries and the transformations that modernity has introduced to Santiago's festivities do not change the will of the spirits to achieve an organized and solidary party.
