Villacarrillo

The origin of the fiestas of Santo Cristo de la Vera Cruz dates back to the commercial and livestock fair in the Middle Ages enabled the citizens to exchange products with the official character of patron saint festivals being conferred upon them by Fernando VII the running of the bulls, which dates from the seventeenth century, the calf fights, and the bullfights are evidence of the intense bullfighting activity which is carried out in these fiestas that last for nine days in September. In this village there is another fiesta that is worth noting.

It was Pope Leon XII who granted the privilege of using the Tabernacle of Gilded silver on its throne adorned with red and white carnations, which symbolise all the children who have taken communion that year. This fiesta is remarkable because the altars at the stops along the way are majestically adorned with artistic carpets over a surface covered with nut sedge which competes in beauty with balconies embellished with flags flowerpots and mantles.
