San Pancracio Celebration

Pancracio, an honest, fourteen year old, Christian convert, had given away all his possessions to the poor. When the Roman Empire Emperor, Diocletian, heard about this, he summoned the young man to make him give up his beliefs, but he did not do so and was beheaded.
San Pancracio is nowadays known as the patron sSaint of jobs and health. In our country, thousands of followers attend the church on the corner of Inca and Pagola Streets in the Villa Muñoz district with food and clothes offerings for the poor.
An interesting fact is that the well-known food market on Inca Street is full of stalls selling non-perishable foods and competing with food offers, facilitating the purchase of the offerings by the devotees at very convenient prices.
