Extra-curricular activities 16th-20th April

Monday 16th: 19.00:  FREE EVENING: It is an exclusive public holiday in the province of Salamanca. It´s always held on the Monday after Easter. On this day people gather in the countryside to enjoy the traditional hornazo, a pie filled with sausage and boiled egg. The origin of this festival dates back to the sixteenth century, when King Philip II gave orders under which the prostitutes who lived in the brothel House of Salamanca, were to be taken, during Lent, out of town. From Ash Wednesday, the prostitutes left their residence and were moved across the river Tormes. The person responsible for monitoring, care and attention to prostitutes was the "Father of the prostitutes". This character accompanied the students to pick up the prostitutes, always the Monday after Easter (Lunes de Aguas).
