The lagenaria siceraria is known as the Pilgrim's Pumpkin for being part of the typical clothing of the medieval pilgrim. Traditionally, the pumkin was emptied and filled with water or wine, carrying it during the trip hung with a rope from the staff (stick used by pilgrims to helps along the walk), the waist or another part of their own clothes. Today, ocassionally, we can still see some of these pilgrim's pumpkin on the Xacobean route, but now as an emblem or icon of popular tradition, no longer as a container to transport drinks.
