Description

An emotive representation of the death of Jesus Christ. The Easter Week celebrations in Viveiro have various important moments that make people live the processions through its streets with great intensity and feeling. This is especially true of Easter Wednesday, with the Stations of the Cross. Moving statues stage different scenes from the life and passion of Christ, such as the procession of the "Santo Encuentro" (Holy Encounter). Also worthy of mention are: the "llamada de los Caladiños", a call to serenity and recollection; the Passion, on the night of Good Friday. Local people get very involved with these celebrations - Viveiro has many religious brotherhoods and associations.
