Zamora holy week

The Holy Week processions, with all their particular characteristics and intrinsic beauty, take place every day as from Palm Sunday, culminating with the glory of the Resurrection and the joy of Easter. An atmosphere of mourning and devotion is succeeded by a day full of light and colour and the sound of bells pealing from the gables and towers of our cathedrals, churches and hermitages.

On the night of Maundy Thursday, the Fraternity of the Recumbent Christ parades with an impressive image of Jesus by Gregorio Hernández on their shoulders. This day, the Vera Cruz ('True Cross') Brotherhood is the most important. It is one of the oldest of all Holy Week brotherhoods in Spain. It dates from the 15th century. The striking on Friday is The Congregation, where the rest of the images present the famous bow to the Virgin of Solitude at the Three Crosses.
