Pilgrimage

September is when the annual pilgrimage to escort the  patron of Álora, la Virgen de las Flores, back to her sanctuary takes place. More pics here.

Easter… again

Well, it was all last week and it is over now. But when there is all this action going on at your doorstep, I cannot resist going out and photograph it.

These ones are from Palm Sunday when they were passing by the square where I live.

Pilgrimage

Sunday after the 8th of September is the day of the annual pilgrimage to escort the  patron of Álora, la Virgen de las Flores, back to her sanctuary after nine days in the parroquial church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación. The virgin is escorted by carts, wagons, tractors, people on horsebacks, and people on foot.

It’s a big day in town … and it’s a big day for photographers of all kinds.
