Leon Cabezadas

The Festival of las Cabezadas takes places the last Sunday of April.

After a debate or a discussion between the representatives of the town authorities and those of the Cabildo (Chapter) de San Isidoro, the representatives of the municipal Corporación (Corporation) bow their heads three times to the Cabildo.

The municipal Corporación leave the town hall and head for the Basílica de San Isidoro. The entourage is usually presided over by a town councillor who carries the royal standard, and accompanied by the macebearers and the municipal guard in full uniform while the band play the hymn of León.

At the doors of the Basílica de San Isidoro they are received by the Cabildo. They go into the cloister where they make an offering to the Cabildo in the name of the Corporación. A debate is started about whether the offering is voluntary or compulsory. Both sides defend their opinion with intelligence and historical facts. The discussion always finishes in stalemate.
