Santa Semana No. 13

The next and most spectacular procession of the week is also on Friday, in the evening. It is a painfully slow death dirge taking a couple of hours to cover a relatively short distance through town. This Holy Burial march begins with Christ on the cross, escorted by Roman Centurions and ends with Christ displayed in a glass coffin, ready for burial. The city streets are filled to the brim with spectators.
