Sanctuary of El Henar

Sanctuary of El Henar

Only 5 kms de Cuellar is the Shrine of Our Lady of El Henar, image that has a great devotion and is Patron of the resiners.

In their pilgrimage, in September, they gather around the 20.000 people, celebrating a night procession with torches. In the large avenue there is the so-called Fountain of the Cirio, from which water continues to flow and in which, according to tradition, the sacred image appeared, a beautiful polychrome carving, with the Child sitting between his knees, from the 12th century.

The sanctuary is run from 1924 by the Carmelite Fathers of the Old Observance.
