The assortment of historical and monumental sites
in Velez-Rubio has been designated a Cultural Interest
Resource, so the traveller must take time for so much
beauty. The Encarnación church is outstanding
as is the Fatín neighbourhood with its narrow
winding streets surrounded by water and meadows.
Move leisurely about the town, and stop in one of
the taverns to enjoy a nice plate of veal or migas
soaked with good wine and let them tell you know in
Vélez rubio you have to be careful or you will
wind up in prison. On 28 December a group of residents
issues a public notice announcing punishments for
their neighbours and more than one finishes the fiesta
in a cell in the Town Hall. You have nothing to fear
though during Holy week which is deeply ingrained
in the community and has great tradition and popularity.
