Semana cultural with San Marcos and San Isidro in Bérchules

In Bérchules and Alcútar the patron saint of the animals is honoured every year. After a Holy Mass the figure of San Marcos is carried out of the church together with the figure of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of the farmers. Children in colourful clothes, youngsters in covered wagons, riders and villagers with their animals join the procession that slowly moves to Alcútar. Back in Bérchules ´roscos´ and animals are blessed and the breadrings are then handed out.
The San Marcos festivities are part of the cultural week celebrated from the 19th to the 25th of April.
This is the programme of the Semana Cultural in Bérchules 2010:

Hola familia:

Gracias por hacer público el programa. No sé si podremos participar -creo que no porque en esta zona también hay fiestas- pero se agradece conocer todos los eventos que nos proponéis ¡Viva la oficina de turismo EL Paraje!

Un abrazo
