FIESTA DE LOS MAYOS 2019 - 24/04/2019

These festivities, of National Interest status are coing on 4th and 5th May and you can consult here the programme of activities.

The Fiesta de Los Mayos, declared of National Tourist Interest, is held on the first weekend of May, although the complementary activities such as markets, concerts, sporting activities or guided visits are held during a couple of weeks.

The "mayos" or "rag dolls" recreate traditional, original or critical scenes. On Saturday  afternoon and the whole Sunday, neighbours place these "mayos" with satirical explanations written in verse, and residents and visitors walk around them, dressed in a "corremayos" costume, similar to jesters. On Saturday afternoon the "corremayos" participate in a colourful parade. On Sunday, in another lively parade, the "corremayos" visit all the "mayos" and Crosses of May paticipating in the competition,  and several  complementary activities are carried out, such as a craft market, the meeting of "cuadrillas" (folk music groups), etc.
