Hooded man in procession

Mysticism and tradition in the path of major Christs during Holy Week. The streets are filled with flags and banners hanging from balconies and terraces. That day no tolling campaigns. Just the hint of a rattle sound when passing the Procession of Silence. Shops and homes off their lights as a sign of devotion and only candlelight lights the way of this procession. Participants walk barefoot because they feel the pain of seeing Christ died. Devotion and penance, they are accompanied by a horn as the only musical instrument.

Location: Michoacán, México
