FEBRUARY contains the two celebrations of Carnaval, held on different weekends in the different towns throughout the Sierra. 28th February is Andalucia Day, which in Cortelazor is very much aimed at the children, although free paella is dished out in the Plaza de Andalucia and everyone in the village makes sure that they get their share and that they don't miss out on any opportunity to up-date themselves on village gossip.
