Moriones Festival

Moriones Festival, one of the most awaited and colorful festivals in the country, is all set this holy week in the province of Marinduque.

Moriones, from the word “morion” means mask, to which the festival is all about. During Moriones Festival, the streets of Marinduque are filled with men and women in mask and outfit depicting the Roman centurions during the time of Christ. The festival is a reenactment of the Passion of Christ with a highlight on the story of Longinus, a Roman centurion who speared the crucified body of Jesus.
