Madeleine v Easter 2018

This is just a little bit about the culture of Portugal. Please don’t get this snippet wrong. This is the Catholic facet of Portugal and Portugal has many, many other facets.

Easter Friday celebrates the Passion of Christ. Here is the ceremony in Lisbon.

A little to the north of Lisbon is Porto de Mós. There is one place by the same name near Luz, but this one is near to Fátima, which of course was visited by the McCanns.

The scene being re-enacted is the Via Sacra.

In the Algarve, we are having much better weather than Lisbon or the north of Portugal. It looks like our Easter egg hunt will be held outside in the garden.
