La Peña “El Fitolé” was founded in 2010 by a group of friends who loved the Saint Isidore festivities. They wanted to experience them further by taking on a more participatory role. In its beginnings it was made up by eight families who had boys and girls of different ages. Over time and for different reasons, families have been leaving the group, while others have taking their place.
“When we sat down to decide the name and type of Peña, we always knew that, as we had so many children, it would be a children's Peña. We chose the name making reference to a popular Yeclan game called “El Fitolé”, nowadays better known as “Hide and Seek”. In this game, a player, without looking, counts to a certain number while the rest of the players hide, and he or she then has to find them all. We have recovered this name and have also introduced it in several aspects of the Peña.
