And in the afternoon, from 18:00 hours, the recitation of the Holy Rosary to end the day with the singing of the Salve at 21:30 hours.

Tradition has it that the image arrived from Italy with the Tercios who came to put down the Moorish rebellion of 1568.

Once the conflict was over and the area had been repopulated, the image of the Virgin of the Rosary presided over the altarpiece in the Parish Church, accompanied by the image of the Virgin of Succour, which the soldiers of D. Juan de Austria had left behind after their passage through the town.

On 17th April 1575, in gratitude for the favours received, the villagers chose the Virgen del Socorro as their “Advocate and Help”, building her a Hermitage, 447 years ago.
