It is difficult to set an exact date for the beginning of the Mayos. Lads went out during the night of the 30th April to sing to the Virgin and to the young ladies of the locality to woo them. Depeding on their answer, either they had a flowerpot painted on their façade, trying to make it as beautiful as possible, or they were thrown a paint bucket, drawing what is known as “enramá”. Going out during this night was referred to as going out “de ronda”. Some even link this tradition back to minstrels from Medieval Age.
