Evening of International Music

Pilgrimage to the chapel of San Juan de Dios

Sunday 30 August: Pilgrimage to the chapel of San Juan de Dios, at the site of the Adelfilla spring. A walk down to the chapel accompanying the statue of Santo Niño will be followed by a 'flamenco' mass with singing by the coro romero de San Pablo de Buceite. After the service there will be free paella and entertainment from Dúo Latidos before the statue is returned to Gaucín castle. This is probably Gaucín's most important annual event, bringing many people back to the village as families gather to celebrate Juan Ciudad's sighting of the holy child in 1536.
