In pictures: Bolivia's popular fairs

In the Beni region, in the depths of Bolivia's Amazonian basin, Christianity was brought by the Jesuit Missionaries and combined with the existing local religion, creating colourful ceremonies. During the annual festival in the village of San Ignacio de Moxos, Dona Margarita lights a candle to the patron saint, San Ignacio.
