Burning of Judas

In the same context, Holy Saturday is also marked by the celebration of the Burning of Judas. This is a burning of dolls made by the residents of the hamlet to symbolically punish the apostle’s betrayal to Jesus Christ. This celebration lasts throughout the night with the company of musical performances.


Parish Cemetery

The Parish Cemetery is the local graveyard, whose structure dates back to the 19th century, when the first vaults and tombs began to be built on the outskirts of the castle. The cemetery is guarded by the medieval fortress and the hill on which it is built. It offers unbeatable views of the region.


Olvera City Wall

The Olvera City Wall is made up of towers and fragments of a stone fortress that has survived from the Middle Ages. Inside it the life of its citizens was lived, who were protected by the wall, which surrounded from the south side of the castle and bordered the current district of La Villa.


Bank of the Bornos Reservoir

The Bank of the Bornos Reservoir is a path that starts at the Islita – a stone elevation surrounded by the Guadalete River in the shape of an island – and ends at the Bornos dam. The path, also designated “de la Angostura”, skirts the valley at its deepest point. Along the way it is possible to pass through tunnels and gorges, which make this route a unique attraction.

Aguardiente Bull

The Aguardiente Bull, considered the first running of bulls in the Peninsula, is a celebration that coincides with the New Year. The route, of approximately 500 meters, runs along Pedro Sanz Street, which is decorated and prepared for the occasion. The origin of the name of this festivity comes from the liquor bottles that were left along the street. Although this event dates back to the 19th century, it did not escape the censorship of the Civil War and would not be revived until the subsequent Democratic Transition.

Pilgrimage in Honor of the Patron Saint Nicolás

The Pilgrimage in Honor of the Patron Saint Nicolás takes place on the first weekend in June. The schedule of festivities revolves around the patron saint of Algar, who is taken in procession in a cart to Romera Ranch. In this place a mass will be celebrated, followed by different activities that will enliven the festivities.
