Thousands of local believers gathered yesterday to accompany their patron “Virgen del Rosario” (Virgen of Rosary) to the main altar in the local Cathedral. She made her way through applauses, flowers and fireworks that believers bring for her. This activity takes place on the last thursday of September and it’s the first one that leads a week of activities in honor of “Virgen del Rosario”
