See fierce Viking raid on coastal town in Spain

Enthusiasts dressed in Viking warrior outfits participated in the “Romeria Vikinga” festival in Spain’s Catoira on Sunday. The actors celebrated this event by reenacting an 11th century attack on the village by a Viking tribe, using a replica of a Viking boat to simulate the raid. Participants then staged a mock battle, including clashes with fake swords, axes and hammers, while playing drums and blowing horns.
The festival has taken place every first Sunday of August since 1960 and attracts thousands of people every year.
