Another of our differences is found in HOW we represent the Passion of Christ, and each biblical passage in general. Let’s start by defining what a barracks is, which is a brotherhood house where people belonging to the same brotherhood meet. Each barracks has a name based on a biblical passage or its own brotherhood, and has been assigned a group of Figures, which are representations of each influential personage in the Bible, carried out by means of a suit and a rostrillo (mask) that will be put on members of the barracks to parade on the street. To continue explaining our Easter, we must focus on a special Figure. Rather, about one hundred and twenty-five figures united into one: the Roman Empire. The Passion of Christ is nothing without the intervention of Rome, for this reason, a barracks called the Roman Empire was created, whose assigned figures are the members of the Roman army itself. About one hundred and twenty-five men, with a brass band and marches of their own. They parade through the streets every Lenten Saturday as well, warning that something important is coming.

The imagery of our Holy Week is another of its greatest jewels, highlighting as proof the image of the Lord of Humility and Patience, and Our Father Jesus Nazarene.
