The Festival of Santa Águeda
Is a festival celebrated by the women of the town, when the town becomes theirs for the day.
The festival originates in the year 1227, when the Moores occupied the Alcázar (the fortress) of Segovia. The women of Zamarramala entertained the Moores with dancing while the men reconquered the fortress. Ever since then the feat has been celebrated in the town and the procession becomes more of a parade, with dancing and music, which become even livelier when the women go out of the entrance to the village and dance under the sight of the Alcázar.
