A "Via Crucis live”, organized by the parish of Pêra, takes place on April 13, at 21 pm, starting at Largo 00 de Abril.

This event's audience, which takes place every two years, takes participants to follow the last moments of Christ's life, recreated by about 150 volunteers of different ages.

Ten steps along the path taken by Jesus Christ to Calvary are portrayed, with the action starting with the recreation of the “Last Supper” and ending with the recreation of the “Resurrection”.

The extras roam the streets of this picturesque village, with some musical moments, this year by the choir Vox Albuhera from the Albufeira Conservatory and the fado singer Ricardo Neto

Usually, hundreds of people participate and follow, with a spirit of devotion, this event, which is of great importance for the Christian community of this parish.

The event has the support of the Municipality of Silves, the Union of Parishes of Alcantarilha and Pêra and is sponsored by the Caixa de Crédito Agrícola de Pêra and local anonymous entities.
