 If you've ever seen the many Easter processions that take place in Spain during Holy Week, and especially Good Friday, you might have been surprised to see penitents wearing the white hoods similar to those worn by the Ku Klux Klan. However, these hats are a throwback to the famous Spanish Inquisition, where those found guilty would wear a conical hat and be forced to walk in the streets to the mocks and jeers of the crowds. The processions are now a nod to Christ's walk to Calvary.
