A statue of the Virgen de los Desamparados (Our Lady of the Forsaken) is carried through a crowd of hundreds of people during the ‘Geperudeta’ procession in Valencia, Spain, on Sunday. The Catholic ceremony has been taking place on the second Sunday of May since the end of the nineteenth century. This apparition of the Virgin Mary is the patroness of Valencia, and is linked to institutions that help the mentally ill, the elderly, children and blind people. Photo: Jose Jordan/Getty Images
