Romería Nacional de los Gitanos
The National Gypsy Pilgrimage traditionally takes place on the third Sunday of June and attracts not only gypsies, but also “payos” (non-gypsies). In fact, founded in 1969 by Jose Córdoba Reyes, this event now draws participants from across Andalusia, Spain and even beyond national borders, and succeeds not only in uniting gypsy communities, but also in bridging the gap between gypsies and non-gypsies. More on the Cabra Gypsy Festival.
