La Tirana
CULTURAL NOTE
La Tirana
A spectacular yearly festival in La Tirana, Chile. The high point is on July 16, the day of La Virgen del Carmen, Chile's patron saint. Many thousands of people come to the village to watch three days of non-stop dancing by costumed dancers before a richly adorned statue of the Virgin. Some of the dances are fantastic, others are religious allegories, such as the diabladas, performed by dancers wearing devil masks.
