The Good Friday procession at the same time of the Mysteries of Trapani will start at 14 pm, with output from the Church of San Giuliano di Erice the procession of the Mysteries of Erice, who has compared to that of the nearby Trapani a smaller size, but not for less important and suggestive.

The origin of the procession must be sought in the second half of 1500, when it represented the scenes of the Passion of Christ with theatrical scenes with live people. We are in the period in which it was celebrated in Trento the famous Council, and the Church to fight the Protestant Reformation, proved very tough against all those expressions of popular piety that does not reproduce faithfully the stories described by the gospel. Initially the Church ruled that the actors in meat bones were not allowed to pray, but to represent the various scenes of the Cross remained silent and motionless; then in the second half of 1700 it was determined that the actors were replaced by living statues in wood, because the scenic representation with live people was very expensive and the economy ericina at that time you could not afford to incur certain costs.

Some papers report that the first wooden statues dating back to 1762 and today there are six vare coming out in procession, but with very different characteristics than the procession of Trapani. First, the size statues are very small and there are no traditional "annacate", because of bad roads and steep Erice and then the time is much reduced, because the return to the church is scheduled for 20.00 hours. And ┤much less rich in terms of scenic, but also the event annually attracts a large number of tourists who are attracted by the charm of the medieval town of Erice can express.
