Good Friday Processions in Malta

There is nothing that compares to the experience of attending a Good Friday procession in Malta

 

The procession of Christian devotees,watched by huge crowds, the funeral marches played by live brass bands, the elaborate costumes and the detailed statues depicting the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ…

 

Easter in Malta is a grand event. On Good Friday, everything stops. It is a public holiday, all businesses are closed and the passage of traffic is diverted away from most town centres to make way for the grand procession.
