Full description
Known in Maltese as 'Il-Gimgha l-Kbira', or 'the most important Friday of the year', Good Friday is a day of community mourning. In the afternoons, the main towns and villages of the country are transformed into open-air theatres that celebrate the cycle of suffering, death and resurrection.

Join thousands of Maltese locals as they watch life-size statues depicting the Passion of Christ, followed by participants dressed up in costumes re-enacting scenes from the Old Testament, from your very own seat at the procession. Accompanied by a local guide and comfortably transferred in an air-conditioned coach, this tour is perfect for those looking to partake in the Good Friday ceremony in an organized way.
