  An altar - Un altar
by spanishguy

There are some altars with Virgin images and small religious pictures of Saints in old town. They have been placed there by people who pray and who wish that other people will pray to them too and ask to any necessity. Anyone could look after this images putting here a flower, a candle or giving a donation. This one is a piety (the Virgin Mary with Jesus Christ already dead).

En el casco antiguo hay pequeños altares con imágenes de la Virgen y estampas de Santos. Han sido puestos por personas que les rezan y desean que la gente pueda hacerle alguna petición especial. Cualquiera puede cuidarlas poniendo alguna flor, una vela o haciendo una donación. Este es una piedad (la Virgen María con Jesucristo ya muerto).
