A few weeks ago at the International Tourism Fair (FITUR), the mayor of Andújar, Francisco Huertas, presented the poster of the Pilgrimage of the Virgen de la Cabeza 2019. This is one of the most important events in the annual calendar of Andújar, since it celebrates one more year the great devotion to the patron saint of the city, the Virgen de la Cabeza.
As the mayor said in a recent interview with the newspaper La Contra de Jaén, “the procession is not just a devotion and can not be explained with two words.” 800 years of history have converted the Pilgrimage of the Virgen de la Cabeza In an experience that goes beyond religion, it is part of the culture, of the local identity.The feelings conveyed in this celebration are unique and the emotions are great.This year, the pilgrimage will take place from the 21st to the 29th of April.
This year, the poster of the Pilgrimage of the Virgin of the Head is especially significant, since it is a lithograph recovered from 1909, when the Virgin was crowned canonically in the city. With more than a century of history, this valuable work of art has survived several events, becoming the oldest known poster.
