Holy Week, Reenacting the Past

Virgen de la Soledad en el Santo Entierro

By Jesús Aguado

The centennial processions that take place in the historic center demand decorous mourning from those who take part in them with absolute silence, slow passing, and streets filled with mastranzo, chamomile, and mint, plants that freshen the air with their healing perfume as the heavy religious.

With time-honored processions, Catholics recall Jesus Christ’s way of the cross. There are some major processions like the Lord of Blow, the Holy Encounter, the Holy Burial, the Procession of the Divine Prisoner, and others that take place in neighborhoods nearby. Atención presents the most complete guide so that you will not miss a single event of the celebration.
