About Holy Week

 

Otherwise known as Semana Santa in Portuguese, the Holy Week is a time when the Catholic population of Brazil celebrates the Holy Week. As being one of the countries that houses a huge number of Roman Catholics, Brazil observes Holy Week throughout the country with processions and rituals similar to those of other Catholic countries.

However, the colonial city of Ouro Preto steals the show with its lavish and emotive Holy Week processions and other relevant events. The legacy of Holy Week in Ouro Preto dates back to 1698 and since then it has made a mark in the cultural map of Brazil.

However, due their association of certain specific related rituals, some other places of Brazil also finds mention. For instance, Procissao do Fogareu or Procession of the Torches is one custom that has been in the scene for the past 200 years in the town of Goias Velho. Similarly, Nova Jerusalem, an open air theater-town in Pernambuco is renowned for the staging of the reenactment of the Passion of Christ and The Recife Passion Play. Amidst, all the customs and rituals, Christ's removal from the cross on Good Friday remains one of the highlights of the celebrations.
