Procession of the Virgen de las Nieves

Procession of the Virgen de las Nieves

On the Saturday before the 5th August, the day of the Virgin of Las Nieves, a charming romería (procession) travels along the route to her sanctuary. The event commemorates the times when, back in the 15th century, the virgin was the object of fierce devotion, with locals turning to her to whenever rain was scarce or in the event of other problems.
