Today, as we were heading to south towards Ronda to have lunch with the family, we got caught up in the colourful, annual celebration for the San Isidre, the patron saint of farming.
This local celebration has been put together by the village brotherhood of Setenil.
Most rural communities celebrate this with a Romeria, a caravan of colour carriages buggies and horses.
Many are dressed in traditional clothes and the women are in colourful flamenco style dressed. Wine and beer is enjoyed on route to the destination in the countryside, where there’s a big party.
It was a beautiful day, but really warm, with temperatures reaching 31 degrees! Ronda was buzzing with the excitement of the La Legion 101 – a 101 km bike race through the Ronda Mountain countryside. Even our nephews took part in a special 'carrera infantil'.
