GAUCÍN: Balcony of the Ronda Mountains where the Holy Child appeared to St. John of God.
The illustrious, always noble, very hospitable village of Gaucín.

On Sunday August 25th we begin the Santo Niño festivities with the Romería a la Adelfilla. The procession starts at the church at 08:30, passing through the plazoleta at approximately 09:00 before heading down the Camino Gibraltar to the Hermita. Once the “Romeros” have arrived there will be a mass at 11:00 followed by music from “Los Latidos”, free paella and a bar. The ascent back up to the village is at 18:30 after which the image of the Santo Niño is taken to the castle chapel.

Festivities continue as follows:

Saturday August 31st to Friday September 6th

A service will be held in the castle chapel each day at 19:30 with mass at 20:00.

There is an idea to form a choir in the village, starting in September.
