Axe and Wood

Axe and Wood

The celebrations of the Brotherhood of the Virgen of Guadalupe are a tradition dating back almost 500 years. The axe and wood is one of them and is held the second Saturday of November.

It starts early at the Brotherhood where workers with axes, machetes and loading platforms come to have a breakfast of doughnuts, sweet cornbread and coffee.
Later, they go to the Cerro de las Cruces field to cut the wood that they will use during the Virgen of Guadalupe festivities in December.
