The Semana Santa (Holy Week) celebrations in Valladolid combine, as do the celebrations of other cities of the region with deep courtesan and cultural roots, influences from two eras: the Semana Santa that dates back to the 15th century, and the reorganisation of 1920 that took place under the archbishop Gandásegui and the writers Cossío, Agapito and Revilla, when remains from the Sayon fraternity, evidence of historic events, were found in the basement of what was then the Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes (Provincial Museum of Fine Arts) in the Palacio de Santa Cruz. The images of Christ and the Virgin were in the temples and have been better cared for and preserved, as they are cult images.

The historic Semana Santa of the twenties was the consequence of a catastrophe that is still preserved by art. To reunite the pieces of this divine puzzle was a passionate adventure, and one which still engages much research into the art of religious images.
