"Virgen de las Mercedes" shrine
Every year, in September, people from Albania town make a procession to "Las Mercedes" shrine to celebrate the the festivity of "La Virgen de las Mercedes" (Las Mercedes Virgin). There, the parishioners use to carry something to eat at lunchtime, celebrate the mass and take a bath in the Fragua Chorroso river which by the way, crosses near the sanctuary. At this place we find a small chapel of 6m x 10m depth. Also there is an image of Las Mercedes Virgin of about 80 centimeters high, built-in the wall and covered by a glass. The monument was donated by one of the settlers of the township because he received a favor. i
