Fátima Festivity ( The last Sunday in May)

Fátima Festivities

At the end of May and finishing the spring, the Barrio de Cuevas and the Fátima Church dress up to carry out the celebrations in honour of its principal: the Virgen de Fátima. She is processed at night along the streets of the neighbourhood, accompanied by three little shepherds, those who the Virgin appeared to: Lucía, Francisco and Jacinta. She is decorated with flowers and carried on the shoulders of her costaleros. She arrives at the church at midnight and the faithful said goodbye to her by fireworks. This procession dates back to 1957.
