The Brotherhood of La Vera Cruz wears a costume dating back to the 17 th century known as a 'felipecuarto' (Philip IV)
Good Friday in Ágreda
The Good Friday festival in Ágreda has a great tradition, and is characterised by the costumes worn by the Cofradía (fraternity) de la Vera Cruz, which is from the 17th century and is known as ‘the felipecuarto’, as it is inspired by the fashions of the nobility during the reign of Felipe IV.
On the morning of Good Friday the fraternity carries its religious images in procession, in accordance with secular convention, to the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de los Milagros to hear the Sermón de las Siete Palabras (the sermon of the seven words), during which the change of the guard is enacted by the roman soldiers who guard the Calvary.
