La quema del Lucas en Guia de Isora

The rescue of the Lucas in Guía de Isora

The burning of Lucas is a tradition that originated in Guía de Isora in 1794, as a way of condemning Fray Lucas, a seductive friar who was dismissed by the bishop due to his immorality. Every year, on the feast of San Juan, a doll representing Fray Lucas is burnt as a way of ridiculing his behaviour and condemning him to burn at the stake for life. Nowadays, the tradition consists of competitions for the best “Lucas”, dances, costume exhibitions and, of course, the burning of the dummy.
