Burial of Genarín

ADD TO MY TRIP

cultured

Genarín was one of the most eccentric characters in the history of León. He was a bohemian, pleasure seeker and liquor lover, killed by the first rubbish truck in the city, which run over him when he was, drunken, having a shit in the street

Every Maundy Thursday thousands of people commemorate his life and death with a funeral procession, consisting of a march through the city while drinking alcohol. Despite of the gloomy sounding of all this, it's a really very funny (and alcoholic) "party"
