Faith walking

On 15th December, many devotees of the "Virgin from the door" (Virgen de la Puerta) visit the city of Otuzco by the feasts of the Virgin Mary, some of them prefer to walk 75 km as a sign of devotion.

When I went back to Trujillo, I found some of these pilgrims on the road.

De regreso a Trujillo, encontré a algunos de estos peregrinos en el camino.

An interesting subject and good illustration. This is a small group but pilgrims do this all over the world.

Disciplines such as this one are good for the soul and for the body.
