Palencia commemorates the passion and death of Jesus Christ during Easter Week. The processions (solemn corteges accompanying religious images) are distinctive for their austerity and sobriety. On the nights of Tuesday and Wednesday in Easter Week, penitents are called to the processions by bugle reveilles and knocks at the door. This is known as the 'call to the brothers'. Another peculiarity is the sound of the 'tararú', consisting of bugles and a children's choir which signal when the processions are due to stop and set off again. Easter Week culminates in the procession of El Rompimiento del Velo. Rockets fly, bells peal, and bread, almonds and lemonade are handed out to announce the Resurrection of Christ.
