At the end of May or the beginning of June, as part of the festivities of Holy Week and the celebration of the pilgrimage of Rocío, the inhabitants of Lanzahíta assemble to start the Romería del Cristo de la Luz (the Pilgrimage of Christ of the Light). This pilgrimage is in the Andalusian style, with hundreds of adorned carriages and horseback riders.

The pilgrimage, which is of medieval origin and has a clear religious character, starts from Lanzahíta and heads towards neighbouring Hontanares.
