Altars of Lady of Sadness during Holy Week in Patzcuaro – a Yearly Event

During Holy Week in Patzcuaro, the tradition of Altars of Lady of Sadness endures.  On Friday before Palm Sunday, is the beginning of her “expo,” which preserves this religious custom.

At Hotel Mansión Iturbe, we participated in the tradition, as well. We were thrilled with our own Altar of Lady of Sadness, which was installed for the entire Holy Week in Patzcuaro. Our visitors were able to enjoy it, along with the many other altars in various locations in the colonial town of Patzcuaro.

The large, elaborate Altar of Lady of Sadness erected next to the mayor’s office was outstanding, as it is every year.
