Semana Santa Nerja Easter 2013

Latest News Monday 25th of March 2013

Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is marked by a series of processions around the town by the different religious brotherhoods, where funereal music, slow drum beats and incense set the mood, whilst dozens of volunteers carry huge platforms bearing images of the Easter story.

The next procession is on Wednesday the 27th of March, followed by two more on Thursday and Friday, with the largest being on Easter Sunday. The route of the marches are similar although the one on Easter Sunday is longer. 

Most begin and end at the El Salvador church next to the Balcon de Europa, where the spectacle of the huge icons being squeezed out of the door is worth seeing. 

People lining the streets give an indication that you are in the right place, and the slow drum beats in the distance warn of the march’s advance.
