Spanish Brotherhood Reenacts Jesus’ Last Supper in Good Friday Procession

Members of a Catholic brotherhood in Malaga, Spain, carry a massive, 3.5-tonne platform reenacting Jesus’ Last Supper for Easter during Semana Santa, or Holy Week, which takes place during the last week of Lent and coincides with Easter. Processions throughout Spain all feature Pasos which are elaborately-decorated floats depicting New Testament figures such as Jesus Christ, the apostles and the Virgin Mary. The parades take different forms and have distinct tones depending on the region. Processions in Andalucia have a celebratory atmosphere, particularly in the provinces of Granada, Malaga and Sevilla. Those in Castilla y Leon, particularly in the provinces of Camora and Valladolid, have a more sombre tone. The processions are accompanied by marching bands who play religious pieces while marchers parade through the streets. Spain is famous the world over for its commemorations to mark the Bible story of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.
