Traditions

Silent Processions. It is a tradition with more than 500 years, celebrated in the San Antonio festival. It serves as a souvenir of two towns that disappeared, Sanchisgudo and Aldeanueva. They vowed to venerate San Antonio so that he would free them from all evils, for this reason, due to his disappearance, the residents of said town pay homage by taking their procession to Sanchisgudo, specifically to his church dedicated to San Julián.

Two processions take place. One through the streets of the town. It is usual that the priest does not return from Sanchisgudo with the faithful, but goes ahead of them to reach the Remondo church and, with the image of San Antonio, goes out to receive the participants in the procession. Afterwards, dances and jacks with music.

In this town the brotherhoods existed: De la Cruz, from the s. XVI and the Santísimo Sacramento, brotherhood of the Rosary and brotherhood Dulce Nombre de Jesús, s. XVI, the brotherhood of the Assumption and brotherhood of San Sebastián s. XVII, and the brotherhood of the Renovation of Souls, the brotherhood of Santa Águeda, where its components are women. Today only the brotherhood of the Cross and the brotherhood of Santa Águeda remain.
