Riogrodo will be celebrating the seventieth anniversary of performances of its famous Passion Play (El Paso) on the nights of 16 and 17 July.

The village was unable to put on the event during Holy Week or mark this year's special anniversary due to Covid-19 restrictions

The performances will see fewer actors taking part than normal and a number of scenes have been cut, meaning a total duration of two hours.

The performances will start at 9.30pm and tickets are available from Riogordo town hall at 10 euros each. Information:
