Sheep market

Always on the first Thursday in September. Even nowadays, in the morning, before the real business of the market begins, the sheep coming down from the mountains are still "divided", i.e. assigned to their owners. For many locals, homesick locals and visitors, however, the day really begins when the market and the music get going.
