The excesses of the Feria and return of so many families to Sevilla, mean that SEPTEMBER is a quiet month in Cortelazor. However the rest of the Sierra is reluctant to go so quietly into autumn. Most notable are Cortegana, again!!, who, no sooner are they out of period costume than they are donning the traditional local kit to celebrate their horse fair and Alajar, a pretty town at the foot of the striking Peña de Arias Montano, where the celebrations occupy the second week in September, the highpoint being the Romeria from the town to the Ermita de la Reina de los Angeles.
