El Vítor night procession

In the night of September 27th 1752, people of Mayorga (Spain) received the second relic of local patron Santo Toribio de Mogrovejo lighting the way of the procession with torches. Nowadays, every September 27th people maintain the tradition and burn hanging pieces of leather to remember day.
