Inspiring Spain Guitar Tour 2017, Holy Week in Almazan, Soria.
En la Ribera del Rio Duero .
An inspiring journey through Soria, Spain, on my 2017 guitar tour. I arrived in Almazán on Good Friday, just in time to celebrate the Friday night Holy Week Procession.
Almazán, in its origin, was the a frontier city between the Christian and Arab Iberian Kingdoms. Almazán, in arabic means fortified village.
This procession, that takes place on Good Friday, symbolises Christ’s Holy Burial. It is organised by the : ” Cofradía del Santo Entierro de nuestro señor Jesucristo”.
It was quite scary to witness a child carrying a cross, but I am sure he participated with adoration to Jesus Christ.
Traditions in Spain endure beyond political chaos and internet. The most effective way to face book life is to get together with old mates at the town square, and chat about life, until life makes a decision to end the conversation.
