Scores of people gathered on Sunday in the town of Aranda de Duero in the Spanish province of Burgos, to take part in the traditional Easter ceremony known as the 'Descent of the Angel.' The highlight of the event was when a five-year-old girl dressed as an angel was dropped from the “heavens,” and then removed a black veil from a woman depicting the Virgin Mary’s sorrows.
