Largest religous festival after Fatima in Portugal. Josefa, my daughter, and I followed the procession which takes 4 hours as there are so many 'followers'! http://www.virtualazores.com/santocristo/maini.html
Before the procession with the image of Senhor Santo Cristo passes, the streets are closed and
This is Josefa and Nicolau with our 'carpet'.
