The town authorities initiate the game of 'Taba'
The Knucklestones Festival
The festival originates from the rogations that are still made as they have been made for centuries in honour of Saint Casilda, for the prosperity of the fields. It also serves to revive the voting ritual that Briviesca town council established to honour the saint.
As tradition holds, after the feasting the town authorities initiate the game of Taba (knucklestones), with betting that was once in silver pesetas and is now in euros.
