Another religious event is widely celebrated here - namely Holy week, usually celebrated in mid-April. However, it is worth noting that the holiday is not such in the broadest sense of the word, and for many Europeans, it may seem blasphemous at all (well, for others, the celebration is the purpose of the tourist route). At this time, the festival participants follow the path of Jesus Christ to the place of his execution — Calvary. There is an initiate depicting Christ at the head of the procession, who carries a massive crucifix with a symbolic image of his execution. In honour of the Christ who died for the sins of people, hundreds of Filipinos beat themselves with a whip — it is believed that suffering can cleanse your soul. Moreover, some of the participants are trying to increase the pain, pouring salt on the open wound.
