From Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, there is a non-stop series of processions commemorating the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ.

The streets of Ferrol fill with religious fervour and crowds surround the floats of its five confraternities, heirs to a centuries-old tradition and a deeply felt popular spirit which has held up to social and generational changes.

Maybe some resources are not geo-referenced and they are not being displayed.

The processions are striking, crowded, moving and solemn. The most noteworthy are those held on Good Friday: The Santo Encuentro (Holy Meeting) takes place in the morning in Amboage Square. In the afternoon there is the procession of the Santo Entierro (Holy Burial), which has a strong liturgical element. It features the Santa Urna, a glass coffin with the figure of Jesus inside, a key part of Ferrol's Holy Week celebrations. In the evening is the eerie Caladiños procession through the streets of the historic La Magdalena neighbourhood, with floats of St. John, Cruz Sudario (Cross of the Shroud) and Our Lady of Sorrows. It ends in the early morning, following the traditional singing of the hymn to the Virgin Mary.
