The Peruvian artist Mario Valencia, who has performed in Lima a live representation of the Passion of Christ during almost 30 years, will do so again this year, on Friday, April 22nd, Good Friday,[in Spanish] at the Cerro San Cristóbal (San Cristobal Hill).
The performance will reunite more than 100 actors, professionals and amateurs. Valencia will start his Via Crucis on Good Friday, carrying a 90kg. cross, touring seven churches located in the Limenian districs of Rimac and Lima Downtown.
A crowd of thousands, between locals and foreigners, follows this kind of procession, that covers some 22km in total, and includes the very steep 7km section to reach the top of the hill.
If you decide to join this procession and take a look, go with your friends, stay together and remember not to wear any expensive gear or cameras since the route includes some not very safe spots in Lima.
