Holy Week in Chacao

Rites and processions.

The town of Chacao has gained enormous fame thanks to its traditional Easter Week celebrations. Especially popular is the Descent of the Palmers, celebrated the Friday before Palm Sunday, during which palm fronds are collected on El Avila mountain, and said fronds are thereupon blessed and distributed to parishioners who display them in their windows and balconies. But this is not the only characteristic rite of Easter Week in Chacao: also noteworthy are the Route of the Seven Temples, held on Maundy Thursday; or the Procession of the Nazarene, in which the image of Christ wearing a purple tunic and surrounded by hundreds of orchids is paraded through the center of town in the evening. And to finish off the week in style, nothing better than sharing a table, bread and wine with neighbors, family and friends, just as tradition dictates.
