Tora de El Fresno

El Fresno (Ávila, Spain) is one of the many villages that maintain its traditional winter carnival. The main character of this carnival is the "tora" ("bull" in feminine). People wear bull horns on their heads, a sack to hide their faces, old housecoats and cover their legs with tied papers.
