Barcelona, a photo a day

Them as well.



What medieval festival would be complete without them? Yes, them, the Spanish Inquisition. We’re in Spain, after all.
So, these people were walking around, shouting “repent” and, should you show the right level of contrition, “ego te absolvo”.
But, probably just in case, the hangman was there as well. You never know, might come in handy.
And I absolutely love the guy in the back’s moustache!

    About the moustache, I seriously doubt that it's a real one.

  5. I'm surprised the inquisitors were represented. Not something the Church wants people to remember. Is that mustache for real?? Love the chain mail!

  8. That's a moustache? And here I thought it was a push broom. Great costumes and it looks like a great time.

    Well, Peter, nobody put me to the question, or burned me on a stake, so I guess I'm safe. For now.
