The Sanctuary of Our Lord of Socorro was built in 1773: it has a single nave, a main chapel with a lantern and a rococo façade with two towers. It presents an imposing staircase flanked by a wall full of biblical figures and angels.

The traditional pilgrimage takes place on the first weekend of July, gathering pilgrims and foreigners who come together to enjoy the party: the drums announce the party, the bands, the folklore dancing groups, the popular entertainment during the Saturday night feast and the Majestic Sunday procession.
