Photographer's Note

It was taken during the "Fiesta del Pilar"
Every year, on the 12th of October, the capital of the region of Aragon in Spain, Zaragoza, becomes a place of celebration and homenaje for the Virgin of Pilar, the patron saint of this historic region.
The history of the Fiesta del Pilar begins in the year 40 A.D., when the apostle Saint James the Greater enters Spain with the task of converting the still largely pagan country to Christianity. In Aragonese territory, while traveling on the eve of January 2, the Virgin appears to him, and asks him to build a church on the very spot where he stood at that moment. Saint James delivered the wishes of the Virgin, and the result still stands today, and is known as the Basilica del Pilar, located in the Plaza del Pilar where i took the photo.
