Are you interested in a country called Spain, that it is much more than bullfighters and flamenco? Do you feel like knowing something more about its culture, people, idiosyncrasy or its current situation? Please, come in

Finally I went this afternoon to see one of the many processions that are taking place in Madrid and in every corner of Spain, during this Easter Week and I have taken some photos of it. Do you want to see them?

The name of this one was la "Procesión del Silencio" and here you can see how it was. Just only a few things to tell you: there were two effigies this time, one of the Virgin Nuestra Señora de La Dolores and the other of the Santisimo Cristo de la Fe (Most Holy Christ of Faith). Each of them are carried by 32 women (the Virgin) and 32 men (the Christ) and the weight they have to support is about 1,500 kilograms for each of them. Has one ever tipped over?

After this little introduction, here are the photos!
