Pure devotion

The last night of the Fiesta in Bigastro is about devotion and thanks to San Joaquín, the patron saint of the town.

The solemn procession around the town is an emotional affair conducted in silence except for the music of the band. The  people carry candles to light the passage and th paso of the saint is taken to the shoulders by the Cofradia de San Joaquín.

And now, my shutter finger needs a rest!
