Description

If you are seeking a unique way to spend your Easter week look no further than the town of Balmaseda, just outside Bilboa. The townspeople have preserved a Living Passion performance originating in the late 19th century. For generations the citizens have reenacted the final days of Christ's life, with the main acts centered around Holy Thursday in the evening and Good Friday in the morning. The performance occurs in the streets and squares of the town. The performance has evolved over the years, adding more participants and scenes, achieving more realism and emotion.
