In Spain romerías are annual religious pilgrimages to chapels and shrines associated with particular saints or miracles of the Virgin. The pilgrims, called romeros, make their way on foot to the particular holy site, often covering long distances, and make offerings before gathering for a picnic. The day's festivities often include sports fixtures, fireworks and traditional music and dancing. Some romerías are large-scale events, one of the best known being the Romería de la Virgen del Rocío at Huelva in Andalusia, which involves spectacular processions of pilgrims in traditional Andalusian dress, some on horseback and some in brilliantly decorated wagons.
