The religious traditions of Holy Week ("Vela setemana") as the procession of Korcula's brotherhoods on the streets of the medieval town of Korcula are a remarkable experience. Confraternity of the All Saints, St. Roch and St. Michael guard centuries old traditions. Of particular interest are "torci" - wax candles which are carried in procession around the city, weighing up to 73 kilograms.
