Perched on the top of the hill there's this very small chapel that goes by the fitting name of Our Lady of the Hill. Once every May, farmers and locals come on pilgrimage, more for the fun of tradition than anything else. They bring flowers and tractors decked with more flowers, olive and palm tree branches and go out into the fields to collect wheat ears with which to compose lovely bouquets to hang in the house for a whole year. They say it brings prosperity. But we prefer our weekend hikes when we have the fields all to ourselves.
