Not to be missed

Setenil de las Bodegas

Hermitage of Saint Sebastián

The Hermitage of Saint Sebastián, located in the highest part of the hillside, is the first Christian temple in the town after the Reconquest. Built at the end of the 15th century on the outskirts of Setenil, it has a late Gothic style and is small in size. Tradition has it that it comes from the tents dedicated to sacred spaces that were set up during campaigns and sieges. The Procession of Silence, one of the oldest in Spain, departs from this temple.

Zahara

Corpus Christi

Since its reconquest in 1483, Zahara has celebrated the Corpus Christi festival every June, one of the most fervent among its inhabitants. As Zahara is the only Andalusian municipality where this festivity has been awarded the distinction of Festivity of National Tourist Interest, the Corpus Christi has maintained its programme of festivities practically unchanged, although it has adapted to modern times and has included cultural activities, such as photography competitions and exhibitions, all in keeping with the religious nature of the festivity. Such is the renown that the Zahara Corpus Christi has acquired that its population is quintupled by visitors during the period of the festivities.

Historical Memory Route

The Historical Memory Route is an itinerary of great historical value, product of the warlike events at the end of the Second Republic, the Civil War and its aftermath. A recent exhumation has made it possible to recover the body of a family, some jewelry, projectiles and bone remains. The grave located in El Baldío is a clear reflection of the horrors made in the Francoism and a reminder of a period from which it is necessary to learn so as not to repeat the same mistakes.

Arcos de la Frontera

Pilgrimage of Arcos de la Frontera

In mid-September, the Santísimo Cristo del Romeral is worshiped during the Pilgrimage of Arcos de la Frontera. Decorated carts, accompanied by pilgrims on foot or horseback, make their way to the hermitage to visit the Saint. Afterwards, a field day takes place in the pine grove of La Plata.

Ubrique

Leather Artisan School

The leather goods industry is one of the hallmarks of Ubrique, and the production of high-quality leather goods has brought it international fame. To find out more about leather production, visitors to the town can visit the Movex Foundation, which will allow them to learn more about the design and manufacture of leather fashion accessories. In addition, the town is home to the Leather Artisan School, a training center that seeks to prepare high-level professionals to further expand their skills.

Holy Week, Asparagus Fair and World Book Day

Holy Week in Alcalá has been declared a festivity of National Tourist Interest in Andalusia. Seven days of devotion and feelings on edge, where the different brotherhoods go through every corner of the municipality accompanied by their people. April also sees the celebration of the Asparagus Fair, which aims to get to know the town’s star product. At the end of the month the World Book Day’s Commemorative Week also takes place, with activities to promote reading.
