The Guilds

I´m sharing The Guilds, a new audio-slide show about Easter week in Trujillo, Caceres, Extremadura, Spain, where medieval Germanic guilds evolved into today´s Holy Week brotherhoods. Jose Antonio Ramos Rubio, the town´s historian, explains how centuries ago his city solved a controversy between two neighborhoods that wanted to parade their statues of the crucified Christ on Holy Friday.

Trujillo is one of Spain´s oldest cities. The contribution of this city to the exploration and conquest of the Americas was substantial. Many famous explorers were born in the city, such as Francisco Pizarro, conqueror of Perú, or Francisco de Orellana, the first European who found the Amazon.
