EASTER / PASSOVER WEEK

Easter is the celebration own excellence and proud that the Castelo de Vide and its institutions. With pagan rituals and sacred celebrations, the incense of brotherhood, tolerance and hope breathe.

The roots are religious, anthropological, deep and diffuse. Reminiscent of other times when the flocks of sheep filled the village today, Holy Saturday also brings the parish cemetery Matrix some sheep for the priest´s blessing before immolation. At night, after the Easter Vigil, the faithful leave the church and join the crowd celebrating Hallelujah for the town´s streets in an unforgettable sound. Thousands of bells that echo into the night.
