Sculpture exhibition in Salamanca

Here is an excellent plan for sculpture lovers visiting Spain in 2007. In the ancient city of Bejar, located in the South of Salamanca (200 kilometres from Madrid) you can enjoy, until the end of this year, an amazing exhibition of sculpture in the framework of a homage to the Spanish sculptor Mateo Hernandez. 57 years after the sculptor's death, the city that hosts his museum celebrates a contest of sculpture. Here is a video of the sculpture exhibition that you can see in Béjar.

Amazing Spanish traditions

Corpus Christi is a popular festivity celebrated in villages all over Spain. One of the most amazing ways of celebrating this day is the procession of the men of moss (hombres de musgo in Spanish), where a group of men and women walk the streets covered from head to toes with moss. The moss oufits are really heavy and warm so bearing them during the 4 hours of the parade is quite a challenge.
This particular Spanish custom takes place in Béjar, a village of the region of Salamanca.
