You may wonder what a romería is. It’s a religuious celebration to honour a local Saint or Virgin and a special occasion for us, locals to wear our traditional dresses, traje de mago.
We usually do certain route on foot or with horses and people also sing traditional folk songs and play guitar and timple, so the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.
A Romería is also a good chance to mix with locals, try our gastronomy and wine, there’s usually wine tasting and typical gastronomy as well .
On the same dates, sometimes there are bailes de Mago, where you “have to ” wear your traje de maga to join the traditional party where we also have the chance to dance to the sound of our popular music.
You are invited to join us!
