El Lavatorio

If you visit Orihuela for the processions of pasos on either Wednesday or Friday look out for the one depicting Jesus washing St Peter's feet.

Our Spanish teacher, Ana is a member of the cofradia and will be processing in the robes of a nazareno (white tunic and cap with a blue cape) handing out sweets to the children.

The figures on the paso were sculpted by the Murcian artist Francisco Salzillo in 1758 . The paso which carries them was built in 1962.
