The Festival of San Juan del Monte
The origins of the festival date back to the Middle Ages, and the people of the Burgos village of Miranda de Ebro celebrate the festival, which is organised by the Fraternity of San Juan del Monte.
The main day is the Monday, when starting at nine o'clock in the morning, all the villagers follow in procession to San Juan, a place in the mountains five kilometres from the village where a hermitage has been built in honour of the saint.
