5 reasons to come to Montilla during Holy Week

Hello! We are already in Holy Week, another year to enjoy all the events that take place during these days and, at Bodegas La Aurora we have thought that there are some reasons why you should come to Montilla but there are 5 powerful reasons to enjoy our Week Santa we are going to expose you here. Do you want to know what they are?

Reason #1: Our people

As our mayor Federico Cabello de Alba says on the page that begins the first tourist guide of Montillana Holy Week that you can download by clicking here, the first reason why you should visit our Holy Week is its people.

I have never been a fan of giving myself praise, but the people of Montilla are simple, approachable and very nice.

People with whom you can talk and have a pleasant time discussing everyday life, a real pleasure to be Montillano and, although it really is not 100%, I consider myself 50% very proud of it.

Reason No. 2: Their customs

Many activities are carried out in Montilla throughout the year, one of the most special and endearing is Holy Week.

Every year many people prepare to live with passion seven days of a week that is very short compared to the others.

Costaler@s, nazaren@s, penitents, musicians who break the silence of the night and the people waiting for the processions to make their way through the different streets of Montilla.

Reason #3: Your meals

If you are a good eater, don’t worry, you have come to the right city, during Holy Week they make sweets that not even the most demanding palate is able to reject.

Cupcakes, pestiños, borachuelos, gajorros, flores, delicaos, empanadillas filled with syrup or torrijas, are some of the sweet delicacies that you can find if you come to visit us.

I suppose you are thinking that people do not live on sweets alone and you are right, that is why in Montilla you will find a wide variety of restaurants, taverns and bars where you can satisfy your hunger with delicious tapas and delicious dishes from our land.

Reason #4: Our wines

In case you still don’t know, Montilla is the city of wine par excellence, it is located within the protected framework of the Denomination to which it gives its name: Montilla-Moriles.

If you come to Montilla you are obliged to try our wines, I can tell you that you have something for all tastes, from the youngest ones made in the same year they were harvested, to aged wines that have been resting in barrels for several years waiting to be tasted. for exclusive palates.

Sweet wines that you can accompany with some pestiño, umm! Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.

And of course, red wines that you can drink during a good dinner before going out to see the processions.

Reason #5: Our oils

The truth is that consuming an oil that was born from our land and that has been made by our people is a real pleasure.

Oil is an essential food in our diet, it contains a multitude of properties that make it a healthy, natural and balanced food.

Getting up in the morning and having a breakfast of toast soaked in olive oil and accompanied by some olives is priceless, and best of all, all of this food has been raised and prepared by the people of Montilla.

As I told you at the beginning, 5 powerful reasons to come to Holy Week in Montilla, if I were you, I wouldn’t think about it too much and I would visit the Montilla tourism website to look for a place to stay. Greetings and enjoy Holy Week!
