The Joyous Encontrada

Easter Sunday is the day when, according to the Christian faith, Jesus rose from the dead. In Felanitx, the statue of Jesus is brought in a solemn procession from the church of the Convent to the church of Sant Miquel where a statue of Maria awaits him. Like every year, the joyous encounter happened again yesterday to the delight of a large crowd and was followed by a solemn church service.
