- Fiesta del Palo – It takes place in the 1st of May. People from the town go to the San Juan River, looking for the tallest tree, to cut and bring it to the centre of the town. There, people gather together and enjoy the day having lunch with family and friends. The importance of the trunk is that later on, in the afternoon, a jamon is hung at the top and people will try to get it climbing the trunk.
- Fiesta de la Candelaria – Celebrated on the 2nd of February. With the branches and trunks cut from the olive trees, people make a bonfire around which they have dinner and enjoy the evening with family and friends.
