Los Hombres de Musgo
Project info

Since 1397 the small town of Béjar, Spain has held up an intriguing tradition with the festival of "Los Hombres de Musgo". The story goes that the Christian population reconquered the town from the "Moros" by completely covering themselves in moss. Camouflaged, they then crawled through the surrounding landscape unseen by the lookouts on the city walls. When they finally got close to the city gates their sudden, horrific appearance completely surprised the guards.
