On Sunday September 21 takes place the traditional Pilgrimage of San Miguel, a pilgrimage of carts pulled by oxen and tractors to the area of pine forest of the municipality where the tour concludes. The pilgrims begin to gather at 9 am at different locations in Torremolinos and from 10 am onwards begins the pilgrimage.
Once in the pine forests, each cart has a marked area and after some rest everything is ready to enjoy the party, lunch, drink, without forgetting the celebration at 5:30 pm of a Mass in honour of St. Michael the Archangel.
