Perhaps the most powerful symbol of christianism is the cross. There are two important traditions in Caracas, the Nazarene of Saint Paul and The Via Crusis performed in the Petare Slum. The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man. It highlights the death of Jesus and remains the believers the torture and pain of Good Friday.
