Every year a captain is chosen for his ability to fly the flag
The Festival of the Captain
The day is in memory of the era of the Condestables de Castilla (the Castilian Counts), who in the 15th century tried to take over the town. But the people rose up in defiance of the corrupt taxes and fought for their freedom. A captain was chosen to organise the defence for the battle. Every year in the parade ground of the castle a captain is chosen for his ability to fly the flag.
