Photographer's Note

Every year S. Miguel da Mota becomes the stage of one of the most beautiful ceremonies of worship I've seen in my country. This was the place of Endovelicus Santuary. Endovelicus is a God from the Iron Age, he was particularly important in the Iberian Peninsula and the worship became extinct owing to the growth of the Christian Faith, during the Roman Period. There are still many ancient ex-votos that were once offered to Endovelicus and studies keep being carried out. The worship actually exists, thanks to the Wicca Celtibera religion, that is keeping the Iberian Gods and Worship alive.
Every year there are conferences about this theme in Alandroal, the nearest town, and the Wicca members prepare a beautiful ceremony of worship on the sacred place.
