Cuevas del Campo, in the Altiplano region of Granada, is a special place to be on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. It is on these days that the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ according to the evangelist Matthew, is re-enacted. 500 locals are transformed into actors and actresses to play their part in this spectacle that attracts thousands of tourists each year.
On the streets of Cuevas del Campo the scenes from the Passion of Christ, from his trial before Pontius Pilate to the crucifixion (obviously a safe version without nails) is acted out.
The smallest detail is taken care of during this dramatic play. Entire families work all year long to make costumes and props, made on a limited budget but with a lot of imagination.
