Visita Iglesia

It was on the 21st of April, a Maundy Thursday when
we set off for the Visita Iglesia... a Tradition when
catholic devotee will visit different churches to pray
on the 14 stations either made of a statue or a drawing,
They were called "stations" to represent the places and
pilgrims where Jesus used to stop at each of them in prayerful
meditation. It was inspired by Jesus' passion and death
on the cross.

Every year many people will come to visit the stations with
prayers and hope... A tradition which I believe had been around
since Christianity was born in our country.

For the first time this year I went with my family...
