Easter Week in Viveiro


Description

Viveiro in Lugo (Galicia) commemorates the passion and death of Jesus Christ during Easter Week. The central part of the celebration is its processions (solemn corteges accompanying the religious images). This event is experienced with great intensity and emotional thanks to the mass participation by the public. Two of the most important days of the week are Easter Wednesday and Good Friday. The first features a re-enactment of the Stations of the Cross. On Good Friday the procession of El Santo Encuentro takes to the streets. This is the most ancient event in the Easter Week commemorations. and consists of a procession in which articulated images recreate the life and passion of Jesus Christ. The processions of La Pasión and La Soledad, also called 'de los Caladiños', are also very well-known, and also take place on Good Friday.
