Drums, horns and clackers woke us at 6 a.m. to get ready for Good Friday. Very dismal sounds.
On the street before 9 a.m. the penitents assembled.
The procession began…
The slow motion of the floats is dramatic and dreadful. (Sorry, I can’t seem to upload my video!)
Resuming our own pilgrimage, we eventually left the town behind andreached one of my favourite stretches of the Camino. Spring has barely started so the vineyards still look dormant.
In Villafranca del Bierzo just before 7 pm, we caught the start of another procession.
