Y va una Partía, /va una Partía,/Por la Sierra, va una Partía,/Y su Capitán se llama: José María.
Those lyrics from Cantes por Serranas are the origin of the most popular bandolier’s legend: José María el Tempranillo.
Nowadays, Pasoslargos, descendant from those bandoliers and romantic contrabandists, with his Partía, lie in watch again the travellers and kidnap them, tying them up, vexing them and treating them as their ancestors from the 18th and 10th Centuries did, trying to break free and living an adventure they will never forget.
As they are guided and forced to walk behind the carriages, tied to the horses’ tail, trees or other suitable places in the unique scenario of the Cádiz Mountains’ first foothills, where their ancestors looked over the horizon and watched the travelers who crossed the valleys in order to assault them a few mountains higher. There, they can enjoy the dances to the sound of tonás, listen to the music from a Flamenco guitar and listen the festive cantes of flamenco. All in all, makes the adventure of living a kidnapping a unique show where the traveler is the active subject of a dream came true and feel protagonist of a participatory experience.
