This year’s Novena celebrations to honour Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles (Our Lady of the Angels, Patron Saint of Jimena) in Estación take place this weekend, from Thursday 3rd to Sunday 6th. Four days full of events, fun and ‘good rolls’ (that’s Spanglish, buen rollo in Spanish, better translated to good fun). While there are plenty of stand-out things to do and see, which we’ll be filling you in on, the full official programme is as follows. (Scroll down for today’s JimenaPulse news.)>
