ABLA holds its annual threshing festival on July 25 and 26. This is the third time that the event has been held and each year it attracts more spectators.
Over these two days visitors and fans of agricultural traditions can watch men separating the grain from the chaff, riding spiked threshing boards – trillos – pulled by mules.
“This festival is one way of ensuring that the old customs don’t die out,” said Abla’s mayor Antonio Oliva.
