Santísimo de la Sala Procession in BargasBargas (Toledo)GPS: 39.94160079956055, -4.018970012664795
If this procession astounds because of the silence, and because of the unique candlelight that accompanies it, it is also impressive because of the typical local costumes women and men from the municipality wear. The one for women, complemented by a Manila shawl, in many cases inherited from mother to daughters for many generations. The meticulous arrangement is praiseworthy: V-shaped, crossed toward the back, and smalls folds over the nape are attached to the hair with plenty of pins. Over the ears, the “arracadas”, Mudejar inspired rings, and around their neck, the set of jewelry, pendants in the shape of a bow, a feather or an almond. All this, present on the more than 2,000 local women who normally accompany the procession.
