EXPERIENCE THE GOOD FRIDAY PROCESSION

Join us on Friday 30th March 2018 for the Good Friday Procession.

Good Friday In Malta

A number of statues, representing scenes from the Passion of Christ, are carried through the streets of the town by white-robed men. Young men, women and children, dressed up as Biblical figures, Roman soldiers, and other personages connected with the Passion, walk between the statues. Some carry banners made of purple or black velvet depicting Christ’s Last Seven Words. Others accompanying the procession include men wearing hoods with eye-slits, dressed in white robes, and walking barefoot, sometimes with chains fastened to their ankles and carrying heavy wooden crosses. This is often done as a vow or act of penitence.

Departure from the Grand Hotel Excelsior: 17:00Hrs

Return Transfer from the Three Cities: 20:00Hrs

Price: € 14.00 per person
