Procession of the faithful.
The celebration of Easter in Portugal demonstrates to what extent the Portuguese remain faithful to Catholic traditions. The processions during Holy Week ("Semana Santa") are spectacular, with numerous brotherhoods parading through the streets of the city.
These processions, which represent the way of the cross of Christ, are held during Holy Week, between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. In the streets, magnificent processions unfold, in which traditional costumes are worn and religious symbols carried, all accompanied by a dramatic fervour.
