Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse

No sooner has one fiesta terminated in El Palmar, then it's time for yet another one - this time down in Buenavista del Norte each October, held in honour of the town's patrona, Nuestra Señora de los Remedios (Our Lady of the Remedies). She's supposed to have miraculously seen off a plague of locusts that had devastated the area in 1659 - the 350th anniversary of which was celebrated last year in 2009, no doubt with equal intervention from Mickey Mouse and friends.

See where this picture was taken. [?]
