Procession Votive de la Passion, Roquebrune, France. This Passion Play began life in 1467 as a mark of thanks for the ending of the plague that had ravaged the region. Inhabitants of the village (Roquebrune-Cap-Martin) which sits in the hills between Menton and Monte-Carlo on the Cote d’Azur, perform the play every year on August the 5th through the village’s narrow alleyways.
