Los Picaos

Los Picaos are a penance of the Christian religion, now professed only in the town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra in La Rioja (Spain). It takes place during processions and Stations of the Cross. It consists in the self-flagellation of the back, of a group of people as an act of faith and voluntarily, called disciplinantes, by the beating continued of a skein. All the images were taken during the Holy Week of 2016.
