The programme includes a large number of activities that will take place between 22 and 25 September
Laredo has everything ready to celebrate, once again, the arrival of the Emperor Charles V. A programme of activities will begin on 22 September and conclude on the 25th. As usual, the main and most eagerly awaited activity will be the landing of the emperor, an event that attracts the attention of thousands of visitors every year.
An imperial market, a Renaissance market, falconry exhibitions, puppet shows, parades, parades of standard-bearers, storytellers… And to top it all off, the arrival of the emperor at the palenque on Salvé Beach.
After two years of forced hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Laredo resumes with more strength than ever the events that commemorate the arrival of Emperor Charles V on 26 September 1556 on his way to his final retirement in Yuste.
There will be four days in which both locals and visitors to Laredo will be able to enjoy a wide range of activities; and which will conclude on Sunday 25th with the farewell spectacle of the emperor and his sisters as they set off on the long journey to the Monastery of Yuste.
In addition to the scheduled activities, from the 1st October until the 31st, the 14th Desembarkation of Charles V Festival photographic competition will be open for entries, which will also be resumed after the break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Four days in which Laredo returns to the 16th century to commemorate the arrival of a man who left a deep mark on the Cantabrian town and who is not only Spanish history, but universal.
