PROCESSION DEL SILENCIO QUERETARO
Procession of Silence
The Procession of Silence in Queretaro is an annual event to mourn the Passion of Christ and honor Our Lady of Solitude. It occurs on the night of Good Friday, beginning at the “Señora del Rosario del Rayo Church”, where it originated, and winds through the streets of the historic center of the city of Queretaro. During the event there are the sounds of drums and bugles, but no participant or spectator speaks, giving the event its name. It is one of the most important Holy Week observances in Mexico.
