In the “Semana Santa” before Easter many processions take place. Between the castle walls of ancien Obidos hundreds of people witnessed the burial of Christ on Holy Friday night.
At Easter people offer eachother sugared almonds. This year the almonds were delicious: not only covered with sugar but with chocolate, as well.
Besides almonds at home ‘folares’ are baked. A ‘folar’ is a kind of bread with an egg in the middle. Due to the use of anise the bread has a nice sweet taste.
And of course: everywhere you can buy chocolate bunnies. I bet I gained some pounds eating all Easter sweets…
