The word pilgrimage comes from rosemary, a name that designates pilgrims who go to Rome, and by extension, to any sanctuary.
It is a Catholic holiday that consists of a trip or pilgrimage (in decorated cars, floats, on horseback or on foot) to the sanctuary or hermitage of a virgin or a patron saint of the place, normally located in a country or mountain landscape.
And wherever there is a group in a festive atmosphere, singing and dancing arise. To the Virgin of the Dew they have been dedicated letters for many years, as well as to the Way that the brotherhoods realize until arriving at her. The flowers, the trees, the oxen, the horses and even the dust of the zones that they cross are present all the year thanks to the couplets and sevillanas.
This weekend all the Roman brotherhoods will be in the Village. We encourage you to ask our artists to share some popular theme with you in the masterclass, after the show, to move there.
I leave you a video of the Brotherhood of Carrión making a stop on the way to the Village of El Rocío, where you can see the cheerful and relaxed atmosphere, the dance and the peculiar sound of the Tamboril:
