Procession of Silence in Badalona

  • Things to do

Time Out says

It's Easter. Spain's a Catholic country. So you know what you're getting with the traditional activities. Among the religious processions on Holy Thursday, and one that is documented as far back as the 17th century, is that of nearby Badalona, which highlights both the ancient and the emotional. Known as the Procession of Silence, it got its name given because the participants and spectators don't make a peep as the procession passes through the medieval streets of the Dalt neighbourhood. It's also worth mentioning the special lighting, made only by candles the locals decorate their windows and balconies with, as well as those illuminating the crosses on the walls of houses and those that the members of the procession carry. It starts off at the Parròquia de Santa Maria.
