San Isidro mural

 Passing the village of Ruigómez on Tenerife we spotted this mural at the church square dedicated to ´San Isidro´, which is the name of a festival dating back from the 19th century. A bit of googling learned that the most solemn act is the creation of carpets of natural flowers throughout the streets.

Then there is a procession formed by numerous agricultural carts and carriages that provide local colour, while large groups of people sing songs from popular folklore. The patron saint San Isidro is symbolically offered fruits and soils. I think it's a lovely mural and I like it's location there.
