San Pedro Manrique is a village full of ancient traditions. One of its most famous cultural events is what is called “Paso del fuego”, declared a festivity of national touristic interest which is celebrated on the 23rd and 24th of June, the night of Saint John. It takes place in front of the chapel Virgen de la Peña and the locals walk across a “carpet” of embers while carrying another person on their backs.

 

The streets of San Pedro Manrique are mostly narrow and steep, and there are many houses with cantilevers and trusses made back in the 16th and 17th century.

 

Located on a hill north of the village, there is a castle that only has three of its original gates and two towers left.

 

The church of San Martín de Tours is made up of three naves with simple groin vaults on top of six octagonal pillars. It was recently renovated and during the construction works, Romanesque remains of the original building were found. In the church we can also see well-maintained Gothic elements from the 12th or beginning of the 13th century. The altarpiece in the Major Altar was finished in the 18th century in a Baroque style and one of the paintings is dedicated to the Immaculate Virgin that came from the church of San Miguel, now destroyed.

 

On a hillock near San Pedro Manrique you can also see the Romanesque ruins of San Pedro el Viejo which was an ancient Knights Templar monastery.
