Meet the Asturians - Easter Processions in Oviedo

Throughout Easter week elaborate processions or ” Pasos” are held all over Spain. In Oviedo, the capital of Asturias, a brotherhood called “the students” have reintroduced the medieval tradition of carrying the the large wooden sculptures using only sackcloth and group strenght in order to tell the story of the passion of Christ. 

Antonio Capellán de la Riva gives us a brief guide to the story behind the tradition and the efforts it takes to hold the event every year.
