Groups of friends, associations or villages build a puppet, Judas, who this day is displayed in the streets of the village. In the evenings, a parade goes from the City Hall Square to the castle where these puppets are hung and burned with great clamour in a ceremony symbolizing the exorcism of evil. In the end, The City Council awards prizes to the best Judas.
