Easter -Holy Week- 2018

Sa Processó

One of the most remarkable events of Holy Week is the procession of Maundy Thursday, which proceeds in a silence broken only by the rhythm of the drums. The people participating are members of the various confraternities of carepunats, or penitents, and some carry floats representing the most significant episodes of the Passion of Christ.

S'Endavallament

The most impressive event, though, is the Davallament, or Deposition. This is a popular liturgical ceremony held on Good Friday in the SAnctuary of Sant Salvador. The descent of Jesus from the cross after his death is staged. Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea take him down and place him in the arms of Mary, the Mother of God. The presence of many centurions, the illumination of the ramparts with resin torches and the scenography and music make this dramatisation spectacular. Once the play is over, a sumptuous procession begins, carrying the dead body of Christ in a glass urn from the sanctuary to the parish church.

S'Encontre

At 9 o'clok in the morning on Easter, l'Encontre takes place in the central plaza, Plaça de l'Ajuntament. This play represents the reunion of Mary and her son Jesus after his Resurrection, and symbolises the recovery of happiness and joy after Lent and the Holy Week.
