Out for a walk

There are several processions with statues that take place here in Bigastro. The most popular of course is the one on the 16th August with the statue of San Joaquin.

We also have two processions at Easter, one with the statue of Mary at night and then the Encuentro at dawn with the statues of Mary and Jesus.

Since the Church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, her statue has a special procession.

Let's not forget the Romeria with the statue of San Isidro. Possibly the longest of the processions, this one takes the pilgrims all the way from the Church up to the Hermitage at La Pedrera.

Finally, we have a procession with the statue of Fray Leopoldo. That took place yesterday in bright sunlight.

PS I hope I haven't missed any out, hopefully someone will tell me if I have.
