Spain is a predominantly Roman Catholic country with approximately 94% of the population affiliated to that religion. During the history of Spain, there have been long periods where different religious groups have coexisted, including Muslims, Jews and Christians. Some traditions are more a cultural event rather than a religious one.
During Holy Week, processions take place when participants wear a capirote which is a pointed hat of conical form and is part of the uniform of some brotherhoods and fraternities. They walk barefoot and carry a burden which is symbolic of a penitent. Religious history is apparent in every small town, where the most grandiose building is typically the church. In the large cities the Cathedrals are almost museums.
