An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Cortijo de las Carrizosas and Chapel of Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Fátima


The Cortijo de las Carrizosas is located to the east, on the Marinaleda road. It is a typical construction of the area. When you see this building, you can appreciate how the town of Herrera was formed by joining buildings together one after another. Nearby is the Roman quarry of the same name, today in disuse.

On the grounds of Las Carrizosas is the chapel of Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Fátima, built from 1984 to 1985 to venerate Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima. It houses a marble reproduction of the Virgin throughout the year.

Since 1976, the Herrera pilgrimage has been held every second Sunday of May, at first in the area known as La Cacería Estrada, and later in the area of Las Carrizosas, owned by the Hermandad del Rosario de Fátima, which organises the pilgrimage.
