La Bajada de Jesús (Almazán)

Regional Tourist Interest.

 

Hundreds of kilos of rockets. Thousands of locals and visitors. One town square flickering timidly before darkness spreads throughout.

 

The icon of Jesus of Nazareth comes down from the church of El Campanario, where it has been for one week since it was taken there on the shoulders of those men who won the auction to carry it that morning. Every first Sunday of September, it returns to its chapel surrounded by groups of people, or peñas, and flowers. The square is filled with murmuring and people trying to get the best spot to see the icon pass by. The Municipal Band marks the procession and then the entire village is immersed in silence.

 

When the town square’s clock strikes ten, in the midst of the darkness rockets start soaring. The echoes of fireworks and rockets rumble within each and every person present, building up with every passing moment to finally explode with what is known as la traca final. Christ watches over the performance and the men who carried the icon keep their promises of faith. The icon of Jesus of Nazareth, before returning to its chapel, is turned around to face its village. The intensity of the adrenaline and faith are well present every year in Almazán.
