The traditional Good Friday procession in Campdevànol was recovered four years ago following more than four decades without its celebration. Residents recreate the final journey of Jesus rather than, as happens in other Easter processions, representing it through the carrying of statues and icons—the reason being that, apparently, when the idea for the solemn event was first raised, there weren't sufficient local funds to buy the necessary statues and so the townspeople decided to fill the roles themselves.There are various new features in this year's event, including the performing of sacred music to accompany the final part of the representation.More than 500 people will be taking part in this year's procession, which will start at 7pm from in front of the Pabellón Polideportivo Mercé Guix—to get to Campdevànol, take the N-152 road towards Puigcerdà.
On Holy Thursday, the 'Armats' (Armed group) will also do a procession, starting at 6pm.
