Each year on January 16, people across Spain celebrate San Anton, the patron saint of animals. Towns and cities hold events to purify and bless the animals that contribute to work or those who faithfully accompany their owners for years. During Las Luminarias de San Bartolomé de Pinares, horses and riders jump across bonfires to purify body and soul.
