(CY) Traditional dance of Cyprus

The history of the traditional dance of Kouza
In the old days, people in villages did not have water in their houses. They supplied  water from the river and from the village fountain.  Usually the young women of the village did that job. Every day, they were going to the fountain and they  filled their pitcher. 

Many times, the young men of the villages, were going near  the fountain and they courted the girls.
In that traditional dance, a young man scared the young woman that he loves and the girl’s pitcher falls down and brakes. Then, the young woman  is getting angry with him and he tries to calm her with a rose. After a while, she forgives him and they dance together.

Our Feria begins on Tuesday night and finishes on Sunday night. You can visit the Feria at any time, day or night (until four early morning). It's a great opportunity to know our culture and enjoy dancing and singing Flamenco, eating traditional food..

...and if you want, you can finish the party on the beach, because our Feria is located beside the beach.

One week after our "Feria de la Manzanilla" another important event for Andalusia takes place: El Rocío. It's a pilgrimage to a small village where people from different places go to pay tribute to  the Virgin Rocio (mother of God). People come to Sanlucar to go across the Guadalquivir river and go through the Doñana's Park for three or four days camping in the park altogether, singing, dancing.. Pilgrims go to the Rocio walking or riding horses. The distance between Sanlucar and El Rocío is around 50 km.

Each year around 1,3 million people visit the village in these 7 days of pilgrimage. This video helps you to have an idea what the Rocío is.
