The city celebrated this Friday the 13th the night of witches.
The activity lasted until 9:30 p.m. and its tour ended at the San Jerónimo cemetery with a staged play.
With a large influx of neighbors, a new chapter of “Córdoba Misteriosa” was carried out, an activity designed to celebrate the traditional Halloween Night on Friday the 13th and proposes that citizens can discover the city’s heritage and learn about the stories and tales that are treasured in the affective memory of hundreds of generations.
By means of guided vehicles that are arranged exclusively for the event, tours will be carried out through the most emblematic streets and buildings of the city.
From the esplanade of the Cathedral Church in Plaza San Martín, the buses left as a “ghost train” to visit different points of the city and culminate their journey in the San Jerónimo cemetery.
Some of the stories of fear and mystery that could be experienced in this edition are: The mythical story of “La Pelada de la Cañada”, which is one of the most popular characters in the imaginary of Cordoba at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, the ghosts that inhabit our first civil institution, the Historic Cabildo, the old Campo Santo of the Cathedral, and the ghost of Facundo Quiroga in the Pasaje Santa Catalina.
Once the tour was over, the San Jerónimo cemetery was the scene of the play “Hundidos en el fango”, directed by Quique Paradiso and which covers the history of the ghosts of Cordoba.
“Córdoba Misteriosa” is a proposal that has been developing successfully and with a large audience since 2008. However, thanks to the enhancement of the city’s public spaces, this year it is presented in an unprecedented and renewed edition of tours and activities.
