ANADOLU AGENCY/Juancho Torres
People in costumes take part in the "Cuadrillas de San Martin" parade in San Martin de Los Llanos, Meta, Colombia, on November 15, 2021. Every year, this demonstration brings 48 horsemen who are divided into four gangs which represent four races that have important roles in Colombian history: Arabs or Moors, Spaniards or gallants, African blacks, and Guahibo Indians. The tradition has been held annually since 1735 when the priest Gabino de Balboa created the crews to represent the sacramental acts of the fights between Moors and Christians.
