Easter processions in Tavira

The Palm Sunday Procession started from Carmo Church in Tavira and proceeded through the streets of the riverside town before returning to the church. The nine litters of gilded wood illustrate the life of Christ from the Mount of Olives to his cruxifiction. Tonight (Good Friday) a torchlit procession will commence from the Church of Mercy in Tavira at 9.30pm with the route being illuminated by the light of hundreds of candles.
