Easter Week in Zamora


Description

Zamora recreates the passion and death of Jesus Christ during Easter Week. Its distinctive features include the Gregorian chants and choral singing that accompany many of the processions (solemn corteges that escort the religious images). During the day the processions take place against a backdrop of music and light, while at night they are held in an atmosphere of silence and contemplation. On Easter Wednesday one of the most important processions –that of Cristo de las Injurias– takes to the streets. Maundy Thursday sees two of the oldest processions: the Vera Cruz and Jesús Yacente, the second of which includes one of the most intense moments of the week: just after midnight, the penitents break the silence of the night by intoning the Miserere. There are plenty of other memorable moments on Good Friday: the departure of the image depicting the Road to Calvary, and the 'genuflection' made by all the other 'pasos', or religious floats, at the passing of the Virgin of La Soledad in the Avenue of Las Tres Cruces.
