In the liturgy of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is the religious tradition that scatter the incense on the pilgrims attending mass. The Botafumeiro (a large censer) oscillates at high speed toward the ceiling with great awe of the parishioners.
In these pictures and video, the operators review the incense burner without incense.

En la liturgia de la Catedral de Santiago de Compostela es tradición que los religiosos esparzan el incienso sobre los peregrinos que asisten a la misa. El Botafumeiro (un gran incensario) oscila con gran velocidad hacia el techo con gran asombro de los feligreses.
En estas fotos y vídeo, los operarios revisan el funcionamiento del incensario pero sin incienso.
