Holy Week (Soria capital)

Regional Tourist Interest.

 

Drums and bugles announce the arrival of Holy Week in the capital.

 

In Soria, you know Holy Week is coming when you can hear locals practising the beating of their drums; that characteristic religious sound that has accompanied sacred rituals even before being the typical tune present in religious processions.

 

Later on, when the confraternities put on their cloaks and the icons are ready, Castilian temperance fills the streets with the slow steps of the sinners.

 

On Tuesday, the Flagellation of Christ and the Agony in the Garden that walk with a palm brought from Elche like every year. On Thursday in the Co-Cathedral of San Pedro, there is the washing of the feet. On Friday, the Sayings of Jesus on the Cross passes through the city at midday before the general adoration of the Holy Cross.

 

At night, the great procession of the Entombment of Christ takes place where the oldest confraternity of all seven that still remain in the city pass by carrying the Holy Tomb which arrived in Soria the year 1522.

 

Three sinners carry their crosses while the sombre music of bugles accompany Jesus’ funeral, meanwhile children entertain themselves counting how many capuchones are walking barefoot.
