GPS: 37.3454221 | -4.4230908
Saint Mark’s Day is celebrated in Rute, as in many of the towns of the region, with a country day. From early in the morning different parts of the municipality are filled with families and groups of friends willing to enjoy a day in contact with nature who organize barbecues.
Places like El Lanchar, Fuente Alta, La Noria and the Iznájar reservoir are the most frequented. It is traditional that on Saint Mark’s Day children are treated to the traditional «merendillas», small baskets full of sweets and the typical «pavitas»: pies with bread and hard-boiled eggs, which delight the little ones.
