Burgos, Spain

Holy Innocents Day

Burgos has observed the Boy Bishhop tradition since the 1400s on Holy Innocents Day, December 28. The young bishop rides a white horse through the city, to meet the Mayor and his retinue. The bishop then addresses the mayor, asking once that a bronze monument be placed in front of the Cathedral to commemorate this tradition.
