Palm Sunday in Patzcuaro, the beginning of Holy Week

Palm Sunday in Patzcuaro is a very special time and it represents the beginning of Holy Week. The streets are full of activity. The faithful attend the different temples, such as San Francisco or Santuario de la Virgin de Guadalupe and of course, the unique Basílica de Nuestra Señora de la Salud de Patzcuaro.

Patzcuaro, a Magical Village, is full of palm branches, which reminds of the people used them in Jerusalem to herald Jesus’ triumphal entry into the city, when they proclaimed him King.

Just outside the temples in Patzcuaro, we can admire how these branches are tied and woven into figures, such as Christ on the cross. This is an art form that has been handed down generation after generation. People take the figures into the various temples where they are blessed.
