Beskrivelse

Every year, Cáceres, in Extremadura, celebrates the festivity in honour of its patron saint, San Jorge (the Spanish name for Saint George), in the week of 23 April.

The festival symbolises the Christian reconquest of the city, and combines historical facts like the dispute between Muslims and Christians with legends such as Saint George's victory over the dragon. The streets of the city are decked out for the festivities, and the events include the 'burning of the dragon' in the Plaza Mayor square and dramatised re-enactments of the battle between the Muslims and Christians. There are also processions to the shrine of the Virgin of La Montaña, a bonfire competition, and the search for the golden hens (two golden eggs which are hidden around the city).
