Traditions

 

In the celebration of the festivity of its patron it is customary to carry out a dinner in brotherhood. And after giving an account of tasty food, what better than to end the party with some cheerful dances.

 

Curiosities

 

In a quiet wooded area, where today there are tables and benches for rest and enjoyment of nature, a few years ago games of Celtic bolus were still played here, their testimony is left by a slab or flat stone that was where bowling was placed.

The Legend

 

Leaving Villaluz, very near, in the hamlet of Vega de Rey, runs a popular story that tells how once the king rode in those parts liked so much what he saw that getting off his saddle and taking a handful of land interpel to a neighbor there present, who is this land now? to which the restless vassal replied: yours lord. So the place became real property.
