The Fiesta de los Gabarreros, held in El Espinar and San Rafael, is a homage to the gabarreros (loggers), the locals who used to transport the pine trunks cut down by the lumberjacks back to the town.

Many restaurants of the town, which prepare old recipes that used to be eaten by loggers. In this way, we can commonly find dishes such as Caldereta de los gabarreros, Cocido Maragato al estilo gabarrero, Judiones con liebre del monte and Patatas galopadas.
