This Saturday a horseback ride was held in the Old City in tribute to the Chilean muleteer who made possible the rescue of the survivors of the Los Andes tragedy.
October 13 marks the 50th anniversary of the accident of the Uruguayan plane that was carrying 45 passengers to Chile.
The tribute began at 11:00 in the morning and the appointment was on the boulevard of Ciudad Vieja.
Leading the parade were 30 unsaddled gray horses, representing the deceased. They were unmounted and a horseman was leading them. There was also a special tribute to the Chilean muleteer with a flag bearing his name.
Upon reaching the final point, the Minister of Education and Culture referred to the importance of remembering this moment in history.
The mayor of San Fernando, Pablo Silva, thanked the tribute and stated that a commemoration event will also be held in Chile in December.
