Easter Week / Semana Santa


Easter Week is here. The Spanish call this the Semana Santa. You could argue that this is the most important holiday in Spain. This week-long celebration starts on Palm Sunday, this year this is on the 9th of April and continues till Easter Sunday. Both La Herradura and Almuñécar are the scene of many processions, during the entire week, in remembrance of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection of Christ. It is a week of very moving spectacle where brotherhoods parade through the streets carrying large, heavy wooden thrones with elaborate decoration and various statues of Jesus and Mother Mary. The statues set out from different churches. There are also, among other things, penitents in these processions wearing hooded robes, bearing candles and religious objects. Bands play appropriate music to accompay the processions. Good Friday is a national holiday in Spain. Check out the itinerary below.
