A POEM A DAY - THE DIVINE AURORA



On the 12th August Parcent celebrates the Fiesta day in honour of the Divine Aurora. The village band play the 'Aurora' at dawn around the village streets, stopping to serenade the women named after the dawn. After a solemn mass in her honour, a procession takes place, accompanied by the band who once more perform the 'Aurora' in front of the gathered village. It is always an emotional event, where many remember loved ones. Our family will always remember Lilian at this time, as she sighed her last breath whilst her grandchildren played the Aurora.
