Tradition meets over 200 years of history and has its origin in the construction of the small chapel in honor of the Immaculate Conception.

It was then that the donkeys, which were the main elements of transport, materials had to climb to the top of the hill where the chapel was would find.

All finished exhausted but one that, according neighborhood testimonies, frolicked and brayed endlessly.

Young people gathered there laughed the attitude of the animal and began to imitate.

The rebuznador, wearing a hat with colored ribbons brays ear to the chosen person and simulates their grooming with a large comb, a horseshoe, picks and hammers.

The good humor and understanding, always within the logic festive context, queen for a day of fun and quirky coexistence.
