Santa Faz is both the name of a monastery on the outskirts of Alicante and 
of a local holiday. The main event is an 8 km walk starting at 8 a.m. in the 
city's cathedral and ending at the monastery of Santa Faz where a relic--a 
piece of cloth allegedly used to wipe Jesus's face while he was on the 
cross--is kept. The religious aspect is vastly overshadowed by a general 
fiesta held around the event. This year's edition was last Thursday.

As always, comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
