San Sebastian bathing in Adeje’s adulation again!

Following the traditional dip and blessing of the animals, which  included goats, horses, cats, birds, donkeys and others, the Saint’s statue was carried back up to the plaza and the church.

Given the numbers in attendance, there was, as usual, local police, civil protection and maritime units on stand-by at all times, and no untoward incidents were reported during the event.

This is a celebration with many years’ history, dating back to the late 18th century, though it has changed somewhat over the years.
