The Caballada Fiesta

Spain Castilla-La Mancha Atienza
Calle de Sanchez Dalp, 11, 19270 Atienza, Guadalajara, Spain
It commemorates the charge of muleteers in Atienza, 1162, that saved king Alfonso VIII from falling into the hands of his uncle, Ferdinand II of León, who wanted to seize the throne from him. It is said that the soldiers of the king from León were celebrating a pilgrimage in honour of the Virgen de la Estrella, and that for this reason the muleteers managed to leave without being seen. This fiesta combines historical and religious elements.
