A secular tradition of 17th
The festival of the Colacho
A secular tradition and deeply rooted in the customs of the people, it dates back to the 17th century and has been maintained until today. It has its precedent in the Roman pantomimes and theater games from the Middle Ages.
The Colacho is meant to represent the devil, and is a character dressed up in a brightly coloured grotesque outfit and wearing a mask.
