Gigantes y Cabezudos: San Antolín 2014. Palencia.

Gigantes_y_cabezudos_Palencia_2014My cousin from Palencia called me a couple of weeks ago to invite me to his place. The San Antolín 2014 festivities over there started last Monday August 28th 2014 and end tomorrow, September 2nd. So, we went for a walk last Saturday morning through the Calle Mayor and we came across the traditional Gigantes y Cabezudos parade. These giant hollow figures are made of papier-mâché and cloth and are used in festivities throughout many towns in Spain.
