Fiesta of 'Los Quintos'

Fiesta de Los Quintos 2009On the weekend before the 28th February it is celebrated the popular Fiesta of "Los Quintos", with those born 18 years ago.

During these days, the "Quintos" of Istán will be on the street entertaining us with music and their jovial presence.

The Fiesta of the Quintos goes back many years. When young men came of age at 18 (before it was 21), they prepared themselves to leave the village for their mandatory military service. To celebrate this event they would go through the streets of the village singing accompanied by an accordion on the Saturday night and on Sunday there would be the traditional Ball of the Quintos.
