"Empalaos"
Valverde de la Vera
 
Cáceres, Extramadura

Holy Week commemorates the Passion of Christ, begins on Palm Sunday March 24 2018  to Holy Saturday March 31 2018

 
A re-enactment of Christ's walk carrying the cross on which he was to be impaled at the hill of Calvary, Jerusalem.
Villager's walk through the streets in bare feet and a crown of thorns. Their only clothing is old petticoats and a veil covering their faces. They are all fastened to a plough beam by esparto ropes.
Everyone in the village walks the way of the cross and not a word is spoke, It is all in total silence.
 
Valverde de la Vera, Cáceres, Extremadura.
 The town has managed to preserve the famous "verata" architecture, traditional of the region of La Vera, which includes streets with ditches on the sides, arcaded squares, as well as houses made of stone, adobe and wood, with balconies. The scenery of Valverde de la Vera is not the only reason why the town is so beautiful and unique. But, without a doubt, Valverde de la Vera is famous for the "empales" of Holy Week.
