Sacred Christ of the Halberdiers, Good Friday, Madrid

Sacred Christ of the Halberdiers Good Friday Madrid

Caption
Of the many processions that take place in Madrid on Good Friday the procession of the Sacred Christ of the Halberdiers starts from the Royal Palace, which makes this procession rather special. The bearers of the statue of Christ and the accompanying cortege of Halberdiers are members of the Royal Guard thus giving the procession both a Royal and a military connection. The procession starts from the Door of the Prince at the Royal Palace and ends at the Church-Cathedral of the Armed Forces. I followed the procession until Plaza de La Villa where the Madrid City Council is located. The procession stared at 7:00pm and reached the Plaza at 8:20pm. The evening was cold with occasional light rain. Many processions in Spain were cancelled on Good Friday because of the rain or prospect of rain. A Halberd (Halbert or Swiss voulge) is a two-handed pole weapon with an axe head and spike weapon. The concept as a weapon dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries.
