TITLE: "THE HOODED"
The Hooded are religious penitents wearing specific costumes as a sign of repentance. They come from the beginnings of the Inquisition, when those punished for religious reasons were forced to wear a cone on their heads and a cloth that covered their chest, back and face as a sign and penance. This pilgrimage happens during the procession of silence, which takes place on Good Friday to accompany Christ and his mother on the path of their pain with a deep tone of Easter faith.
