A cloud of smoke, the smell of burnt fish and songs pays homage to Santo Toribio
The Civic procession of el Vítor
The procession is a little strange, as all the villagers dress up in old clothes and cover their heads.
The celebration starts when the villagers burn leather wineskins that are hung from poles. From this point on, between the songs of worship, the cloud of smoke, the fire and the smell of burnt fish pays homage to Santo Toribio, a missionary native to the village who was canonised in the 18th century. These acts of devotion are held in memory of the day that the villagers received the remains of the saint, in whose name the people went into the streets with flaming torches and lanterns.
