The Good Friday Procession of Cubelles

The Good Friday procession (processó del Divendres Sant) of Vilanova's small neighbour town Cubelles is one of the more spectacular ones in this region. Except for Jesus suffering on the cross, it contains other key elements like armats (Roman soldiers) and platforms on which the local patron saints are being paraded.

Still today, a surprisingly big share of Cubelles' inhabitants take part to preserve this tradition. The message about Jesus’ suffering on the cross is being explained without overly terrifying details, so next year I will bring our children.
