After staying for one month in Yunquera, the Virgen Chiquita (Small Virgin) is taken back to Porticate, where they held Mass and spend the day eating and having fun until sunset.
Halfway down the road, Virgin Mary gets a locally made jasmine garland around her neck and a bunch of grapes at her feet.

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.
