Parade of San Marcial (Alarde) { 42 images } Created 2 Jul 2022

The alarde is a parade that commemorates a military victory against the French army in 1522. This parade was traditionally male-only until the mid-1990s, when a group of women claimed their right to participate on equal terms with men. Since then, two parades have been held, one public in which men and women participate together, and the other private, organized by a private group, which, relying on tradition, does not allow women to parade and only men can participate.
