Gozo Cathedral – 6.00PM

The oldest form of Good Friday procession in Gozo can be traced within the Gozo Citadel where once stood the predecessor of today’s Gozo Cathedral Church. Along the years, this procession took on various forms until in 1968, it was re-established in the shape and form by which it is known today. The Good Friday Procession from the Gozo Cathedral is renowned for hundreds of participants namely the Gozo Cathedral Chapter of Canons, the Leone Band, the Fgura Scout Group, regiments of Roman Soldiers, biblical figures and not the least, a precious and devotional set of statues and tableaux dressed in fine clothing according to Siculo-Spanish tradition. The procession starts at 6pm and makes its way through the historic centre of Victoria. Seating at Cathedral Square will be available for the conclusion of the procession, while seating at Savina Square will be available for the first part.
