Traditions

 

If they talk to you about the Villambistia Tradition, they are telling you to completely soak your head in the fountain of the village, because this soaking causes an absolute clearing of fatigue in the most difficult moments. It is said that when a pilgrim arrived at the village very tired, an old man of the place, encouraged him to refresh his head in the fountain, doing so, and after that, the rosemary felt how his strength returned. When he arrived at Santiago, he was so surprised by this fact that he commented it among the other pilgrims. In this way this fact has passed from word of mouth to our days.

 

Curiosities
