Patron Saint Celebrations

These celebrations are held in honour of the Santísimo Cristo de la Misericordia and the Virgen de la Cueva Santa. When there is a maid and ladies of honour, known here as the festeras, they are in charge of organizing the celebrations. When there are neither maids nor ladies of honour available, the village council organizes the festivities. A wide range of activities are held, from strictly religious ceremonies to sporting events, as well as children’s games, street parties, bull-running, and toros embolados, where people are chased through the streets by bulls with flaming torches attached to their horns.
