The Association of Cultural Reconstruction of the Life and Death of José María El Tempranillo and the Town Council of Alameda with the Foundation for the 'Towns on the Land of José María El Temrapanillo' organize yearly events in commemoration of the deathof famous Andalusian bandit from the 19th century José María Hinojosa Cobacho El Tempranillo (22nd September 1833). He was named El Tempranillo in the texts written about him by some European and North American travellers, who called him Andalusian Robin Hood because he defended the lower unprotected social classes from that time.
The Town of Alameda started to celebrate this festivity, which has folkloric, literature, craft and food related four years ago.
