FESTIVALS

The Pilgrimage to the Santuario de Nuestra Senora del Monte. In the second Sunday of August, a procession in honor of the patron saint of Cazalla, an event that dates back to 1635. The faithful travel for 8 km on foot or onto horse-drawn carriages, to the Sanctuary of the Virgin and back to the village, while singing and celebrating.

La Feria de Cazalla. Cazalla de la Sierra’s festival. It’s celebrated in the second half of August, just after the Pilgrimage. Four days of festivities, music, food, entertainment and people in the streets.

During the months of July and August, usually the townhall organizes open air concerts in the main square on weekend days.

FOOD

Cazalla’s typical dish is undoubtedly the Cerdo Iberico, the Iberian pork in all its forms, including sausages and salami. The locals are also very proud of their game meat (wild boar, deer, rabbits), and of the products of the surrounding woods such as mushrooms, asparagus and truffles.

The local wine, known in past centuries and even exported to the Americas in the colonial age, has lost its appeal. The best known drink in town nowadays is the aguardiente, a very alcoholic spirit made with anise.
