Semana Santa in Andalusia, Spain

April 14 - April 21

Semana Santa Malaga Spain

For most Catholics in Andalucia, Holy Week is the most important religious festival of the year. Processions of penitents in long robes and tall, pointed hoods walk through the streets, carrying statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus on flower-decked floats, accompanied by brass bands and saetas. The celebrations in the main cities (the eight provincial capitals, most notably Seville, Malaga and Granada) start officially on Domingo de Ramos (Palm Sunday). Other towns and villages may hold processions on one or two days only during the week, bringing out the Virgins from their churches to be carried through the streets.
