Las Gavillas: Tamurejo - Dec. 24.
Procession of pagan character, of uncertain origins, whose supposed function was to illuminate the shepherds on winter nights with lit sheaves, so that they would not be lost and could return to their homes with total security.
The festival of Las Gavillas takes place on December 24 in Tamurejo. For the same, several columns of dry gamonite branches that can reach up to 6 meters in length are made by hand. After the Mass of the Rooster, these columns walk through the streets of the town. The neighbors of the town go in rows, carrying the burning branches, until finishing in the square of the church, where they form a bonfire with all of them. The whole town gathers around the bonfire, singing carols while the most daring young people jump over the flames, emphasizing above all this day for the intrinsic character of popular coexistence that it entails.
