epa03369226 A boy is sumerged for a holy bath as part of Sao Bartolomeu do Mar pilgrimage, a traditional pilgrimage that dates back before the XVII century, in Esposende, north of Portugal, 24 August 2012. During this secular pilgrimage pilgrims and their children head to Sao Bartolomeu chapel and walk around the temple three times with chickens or black roosters. The children are sent to the beach and dive three consecutive times in the ocean, for a 'Holy Bath' that sends evil away and cures the diseases related to 'demon possession', like stubbornness and epilepsy.
