Hundreds of sheep replace traffic as they flock to downtown Madrid

Sheep replaced the usual traffic in central Madrid as shepherds steered hundreds of the animals through the Spanish capital to proclaim their right to use ancient migration routes. Every year since 1994, sheep farmers have paraded the livestock through the city, an itinerary that once cut through undeveloped countryside, on their way to graze in winter pastures in southern Spain. Sheep farmers pay a symbolic charge, enshrined in a 1418 agreement with the city council, equivalent to 50 maravedis medieval copper coins per 1,000 sheep brought through the central Sol square and Gran Via street.
