The Holy Week in Syracuse
It all starts on Thursday night. The streets and alleys of Ortigia are teeming with curious and direct worshipers at the area’s many parishes. In near the altar of each church, which leaves the door open all night, these are set up ” graves “. ‘A floral triumph smitten by the ” lavureddi ” jars with wheat sprouts and legumes grow in the dark made in previous weeks. All of them churches of Ortigia are involved, the Church of San Benedetto via Capodieci, representing the Orthodox community. A special charm carries the visit at the Church of the Holy Spirit, overlooking the Levante promenade, with the representation of the “Mysteries”: not the usual Way of the Cross with a human-size statues depicting the passion of Jesus. Of great suggestion is then the procession of the dead Christ and the Virgin Mary on Good Friday. After Saturday the week ends in all the churches with the celebrations of the Easter Sunday that seal the resurrection of Christ.
