Every Good Friday, for over four hundred years, the tradition of the Procession of the Sacred Groups of the Via Crucis, the "Mysteries", has been renewed in Trapani.
The procession consists of 20 Sacred Groups, beginning at 2pm on Good
Freday, ending over Twenty-four hours later. It is considered one of the
longest Italian religius events, both for the number of groups and for
duration, and above alla one of the oldest. The procession that - today -
starts from the Church of the Soul in Purgatory, runs along the main
streets of the city. It represents a reconstruction of the Via Crucis.
