The Rise 2020
From May 30 to June 3, "La Subida 2020" is celebrated in Bernardos, a unique party in Spain that is celebrated once every ten years. On May 31, the image of the Virgen del Castillo, patron saint of the town, will be taken in procession to her hermitage, located three kilometers from the town.
On the occasion of extraordinary situations, since the appearance of the image in 1728, and every ten years after 1940, the town of Bernardos dresses in his best clothes to celebrate 'the climb'. A unique festival, of eminent religious character and whose central axis is the patron saint of the town, the Virgen del Castillo, whose image rises in pilgrimage from the church to the hermitage, located on the hill of the Castle.
Ascent of the year 2020 will be celebrated, as is traditional, on Sunday of Pentecost, on May 31, the virgin remaining in the hermitage until the afternoon of the following Tuesday, June 2, when a procession will begin to the rhythm of the jota to accompany the patron saint of the town to her habitual residence, in the parish church. Predictably it will be a long, very long procession (ten years ago it lasted almost 20 hours), which will end well into the morning of day 3.
It is a date marked in red and of inevitable return to Bernardos for many of his children, as some return only for that great day.
It is a party that prepares thoroughly for several years. For the organization of the same, the Association of the Ascent was created, which includes all the representative entities of the town: town hall, diverse associations, clubs, companies, etc. The best thing about the party is that everyone gets involved, because the party belongs to everyone.
From here we encourage you all to stop by Bernardos and enjoy with us the 'Rise'.
