Feria de Verano

The verses of the “Rosario de la Aurora” are verses of campanilleros (flamenco song) distinct to Andalusia and Murcia, with the purpose of calling the neighbours to recite the rosary. With this music, the locals pass through the streets of the town at dawn waking up the neighbours. A single man sings the verses and a choir, made up of all those present, repeats the chorus.
Misas de Gozo
The town has managed to preserve its musical tradition known as the “cuadrillas de ánimas” which are represented by groups of people, generally men, who play at the main festivals, especially at Christmas.
