One more year, the offering of flowers to the Virgin of Pilar surpasses its own record. This 2018 has been the largest and longest edition in history, around 310,000 offerers, 771 groups and more than 16 hours of duration of the offering.
We have been able to see how another year has exceeded all expectations. For those who have not been able to attend or want to see more details about the offering, we leave a gallery with some of the best moments.
