This picnic food featuring a hearty meat pie, called “Hornazo” in Spanish, is eaten on Easter Monday along the green banks of the River Tormes in the city of Salamanca. This is the traditional celebration of the Lunes de Aguas (literally, Monday of Waters) and it is almost exclusive to this city and surrounding villages. The wholesomeness of the modern version of the event belies its lewd origins, making it one of the funniest fiestas of the Easter season. Listen to this podcast and learn more. Enjoy!
