Night of the Church Altars

In the early evening all over central San Miguel people stroll to visit the seven major churches to see the holy relics and monuments inside. The streets are full of people and the Plaza Civica is full of tables and food vendors. The altars in the churches are splendidly decorated, usually including the traditional wheat grass, oranges, gold banners, and sweet smelling green herbs. At many statues, people gently touch the hem of Christ or solemnly pray in silent devotion.
