Santa Teresa Museum, Avila

Avila, Spain

The festivities of Santa Teresa last almost the entire month of October. The proclamation is done by the mayor in the
Plaza Mayor, accompanied by some celebrity. After the proclamation was organized in the same place a musical
performance with renowned singers.

The festival program includes several musical concerts, a fairground, bullfights, passacaglia, processions of the fan
groups, chocolate with churros and liturgical acts naturally focus on the day of the patroness, on 15 October with
multitudinous mass presided by Bishop, then celebrated a great procession, headed the image of Santa Teresa with
the Virgin of La Caridad, and is accompanied by all the authorities of Ávila, civil and military, and several bands music.
The procession takes place between the Cathedral of Ávila and Santa Teresa Church. Takes place the day before the
"Procession Girl" from the Iglesian de Santa Teresa to the Cathedral. (Wikipedia)
