Baza, Spain

People covered in black grease take part in the traditional festival of the Cascamorras. Every year a villager from Guadix dresses as an oddball character called Cascamorras and travels the three kilometers to the village of Baza, flanked by a team of representatives, to stage an attempt to recapture the statue of the Pieta virgin before returning to Guadix after three days to be punished by the locals for his failure.
