Yunquera commemorates Corpus Christi on 30 May
It is a day of heartfelt celebrations in town. Squares and streets are decked with shawls, arches made of plants and floors covered in herbs like thyme or rosemary, which remind us of aromas from the sierras.
There are peculiar altars featuring Jesus and adorned with colourful scented flowers for the people in the procession to pray before them accompanied by a group of children.
At the final stop of the procession, in the town square, a huge altar is set up.

How to get here
The most advisable route to Yunquera starts at the city of Málaga. Take the A-357 highway towards Campillos. After about 14 kilometres, you will get to Cártama, and immediately after that village, you must take the A-355 to Coín. From that locality, you must continue by way of the A-366 to Alozaina. (This is the same road as the A-355 but this stretch has a different name.) At Alozaina, continue on the same road to Yunquera.
If you start from Ronda, you should take the A-366 too, but towards Málaga. You will come to El Burgo after about 25 kilometres and to Yunquera 9 kilometres farther along.
