This weekend was the Romería in our town so Sunday we got up and watched the festivities overtake the town. Everyone dresses in traditional attire called “mago” and the typical style used today dates back to the 1800’s.The patron saint of the town is the Virgin Fatima. The pilgrimage was a 2.5 mile walk up the mountain on a road they close down for the foot traffic. That’s pretty much all there is to know, so I’ll let the photos and videos tell the story.
Celebratory kisses all around!
Not everyone makes it to the top, but I’m glad we did! 5 mile round trip, heat, young kids and all!
Remember as much fun as it is to travel, you don’t always have to go far to experience something different. The reward of making memories is well worth the effort! What local adventures have you gotten into lately? I’d love to hear about any family trips you’ve done or plan to do soon!
