Easter in Quito-Ecuador is celebrated with a Cristian parade called Jesus del Gran Poder Procession with over than 250 000 people between spectators and protagonists walking 7 kilometres in the streets of Historical Quito city centre in the grace of God in order to clean their sins.
Petitions for family, health and pleas for forgiveness were seen reading in the naked torsos of penitent men, who walked barefoot for more than five hours and in many cases, under harsh weather conditions.
