Luminarias

January 16 is celebrated the day of San Anton, the patron saint of animals. In many towns and cities of Spain events and festivals are held to purify and bless the animals that contribute to work or those who faithfully accompany their owners for years. In San Bartolome de Pinares (Avila), a tradition of over 200 years continues to surprise for its spectacular risk. Luminaires are Avila, where horses and riders prepare to jump over bonfires and get across purified body and soul.
