Local festivities: “El Pilar”

Hi world!

Last weekend we celebrated in Zaragoza our local festivities in the honour of the “Virgen del Pilar”. It is thought that MarĂ­a, mother of Jesus (son of the Christian God), appeared to the apostle Santiago near to the river Ebro (where nowadays there is a big church commemorating it.

In October the 12th we honour the Virgen del Pilar by bringing her flowers (this year, about 350.000 people made it, dressed with the regional costume)
