Maniple of Manaies, Banyoles (Catalonia)

In Banyoles every Friday before Palm Sunday the procession of Mare de Déu dels Dolors takes place headed by a unit of Roman soldiers. This tradition is at least 150 years old.

As explained on my blog Catalan Women this year for the first time women can take part in the parade too.

As I took a lot of photos, I would like to share some of them with you the next few days.
