One of the most spectacular events is the procession of the Vía Crucis Penitencial. Among the Segovian processional works of art, one of the oldest is the float of el Cristo de los Gascones which takes part in the Vía Crucis procession in the el Salvador district on the Thursday.

On the Friday the Procesión del Santo Entierro goes from the Zamarramala district to la Vera Cruz. When it approaches los Templarios it meets los Caballeros de la Orden de Malta (the Knights of the Order of Malta), owners of the historical church where they will have been on a vigil. Inside the temple, built in the Romantic period, Santo Oficio (Holy Office) is held. The participants then return to Zamarramala where they sing the Salve Dolorosa (sorrowful hymn) and hear the Sermón de la Soledad (sermon of solitude). These events are a recreation of the ceremonies attended in 1134 by the knights of the Soberana y Militar Orden Hospitalaria de San Juan de Jerusalén de Rodas y Malta (the sovereign and military hospitable order of Saint John of Jerusalén de Rodas and Malta).
