Mining Holy Week


During Holy Week in La Union, the Holy Thursday procession stands out. It has been declared of Regional Tourist Interest and is where the Christ of the Miners reflects the feelings of a population with a marked mining past.

In the Via Crucis, the image of the Christ of the Miners descends through the Sierra Minera on the shoulders of the faithful, from the Mine Agrupa Vicenta to the Church of the Rosary.
