The Three Wise Men of El Castillo de las Guardas

The Three Wise Men Day is the 6th of January, although the Three Wise Men parades usually take place on the eve of the Feast.

One of the particular features of this festival in El Castillo de Las Guardas is that the Three Wise Men arrive in this beautiful village located in the heart of the Mountain Range North of Seville on their dromedaries, in the morning of the 6th. Their saddlebags are packed with sweets and presents, which will be thrown during the parade to the church, placed  in the top of the village.  Inside the church, a small Jesus placed in a Nativity scene, will be waiting for them. The Three Wise Men will offer him gold, frankincense and myrrh. Later on, they will appear at the balconies of the Town Hall and hundreds of presents will be launched to the neighbours.
