Romería in Spanish is a religious pilgrimage. The word Romería comes from romero, meaning those travelling towards Rome. It is a Catholic celebration that consists of a trip or peregrination in cars, floats, to horse or on foot that ends at a sanctuary or hermitage. It is not necessarily always a trip, but in some cases a celebration that lasts all day long. One of the most famous examples of a romería is that of Nuestra Señora del Rocío, in which the faithful move to the Sanctuary of the Virgen del Rocío in the village of the Rocío, in Almonte, Huelva. In the Autonomous Community of Aragón, this date also commemorates Our Lady of the Pillar (their patroness).
