Spain, rich in many traditions.
This one based in religion. The Easter procession.

The time when people make promises to God & show themselves enduring hardship & pain. As they are there for God & not for recognition from the rest of us, they are masked. Their hardships include walking barefoot through their towns (in this case Madrid) with heavy chains. There are even those who carry crosses, of all sizes.

The floats carry the statues, that are the same statues that rest above the alters in the churches. The floats move slowly, not on wheels, but on the shoulders of men & women underneath them.
