Pictures of the Ajijic Viacrucis (Stations of the Cross) 2013

March 30th 2013

Semana Santa and Semana Pascua, translates into “Holy Week” (Starts on Palm Sunday until Easter Saturday) and “Easter Week”. They are both very celebrated holidays in Mexico, especially Semana Santa, since the Lake Chapala region and Mexico in general is predominantly a Catholic society.

The Holy Week celebrates the last few days of the life of Jesus Christ. Many towns in Mexico re-create the crucifixion of Jesus Christ (Stations of the Cross). In the Lake Chapala Region the different towns around the municipality of Chapala, host their own “Vacrucis”, most popular and well organized ones include Ajijic and San Antonio Tlayacapan.  Here is a photoset of the Viacrucis that took place in Ajijic on march 30th 2013:
