Festivity of the Carochos
Its current name comes from the carocha (mask), with which some of the participants wear to cover their faces. These situations are funny and the people sing traditional comic verses.
In the square the accident happens. The cart turns over and the ciego dies. the molacillo calls for a vet and a priest, characters that may be any villager. The gitana appears to be transformed into a new person: the filandorra, dressed in and threads and throwing ashes at everybody.
