The Patron Saint of our village is San Idsidro, so way, way back in May they held a Romeria in his honour. A Romeria consists of getting up an indecent hour, taking the Santo from the village church and accompanying him to a nearby hermita. Where once the mass is held, sausages are sizzled, beer and wine is consumed and the kids (and some adults) indulge in a bit of a water balloon fight.
