Representación de la Pasión de Cristo
Every year on Holy Friday (Good Friday) there is a performance of the Passion of Christ along the route towards the Cerro de la Estrella in Iztapalapa. It is said to be witnessed by four to five million people every year. Supposedly, more people take part in this than any other performance in Latin America. Practically everyone takes part, be it in one of the main roles, or as one of the people of Israel. The role of Christ requires a great deal of both spiritual and physical preparation, given that it involves carrying a cross weighing over 150 kilos, then staying on the cross for several hours. It is advisable to go in comfortable clothes, and preferably not to take children under the age of six, given that is in the open air and during the rainy season. No admission is charged.
