This is in fact the biggest procession on the island. So the streets of the old town are full of tambor sounds, and silence during the pass of the "cofradias" with their images that belong to the different churches of the Town. The devotion of the people is clear around.
The Via crucis, is a procession that is celebrated in each church. Outside there are marks with small churches and they are due this celebration. So in this Thursday I went to Sant Llorenç to see the Via Crucis that they celebrate during the Holy Thursday as the most of the churches. Some others celebrated on the good Friday or the previous sunday.
In Sant Llorenç the folk sings a very very old hymns. They celebrate the procession in the most way of respect and silence.
The traditionals "holy houses" (Cases Santes) are exhibited in every church decorated with many flowers and plants. As a small altar, where the Jesus body is represented during three days. The wine and bread, remains the last dinner of Jesus with the Apostles.
Allways the full moon comes on the night of Holy Thursday to Good Friday. In this ocation I was already in Sant Llorenç de Balafia. So the white church is decorated in these pictures with the magic moon light.
After some weeks in America, exactly in Costa Rica, was a surprise to see in an office of the main city San José a picture of Ibiza. This picture was a classic on the 70´s decade. This steps are located in Dalt Vila between the Town Hall and the old "Seminario". It´s amazing where you can find pictures of this Island.
