Día de Andalucía in Bérchules

The 28th of February, the Día de Andalucía is celebrated. This year it is the 30th anniversary of the statutes of autonomy of Andalusia. For this reason in Cádiar there are special commemorative festivities as we can read in the article from the Libro de Visitas de Cádiar.
In Bérchules and Alcútar it is this year called Día de Pucherico. On the ground floor of the Town Hall of Bérchules an Olla de San Antón and a Puchero de cardos will be prepared on Sunday at 14.00 hours. For the children there will be migas. The bar will be open from 12.00 hours onwards. The profits will be used for the repairs of the parish hall and the church of Alcútar, which both suffered a lot from the bad weather this winter. On Saturday the 27th of February, Trio del Sur will care for the music of a dance party that starts at 22.00 hours also in `los bajos del Ayuntamiento´ of Bérchules.
Something that was announced after writing this article, was the actuación of Al-Cadí of Cádiar and Los Vergeles de Bérchules, two grupos de música tradicional de la Alpujarra on Sunday afternoon.
