Quiroga: Fiesta of Christ's Precious Blood

6 July 2008

On the first Sunday of July, the busy and commercial little town of Quiroga celebrates its patron with the Fiesta de la Sangre Preciosa. The red in the decorations represents the blood. The town spilled over with people.

We ate at the Rey de las Carnitas. One orders the fork-tender pork by weight and by cut. The rib-meat is moist and falls off the bone.

We left around 4:30 pm after our afternoon comida when the festivities were revving up into high gear.
