Easter Parades Start Today

Latest News Sunday 13th of April 2014

Semana Santa or Holy Week starts today Sunday the 13th of April 2014, with the Palm Sunday procession starting at midday at Plaza Ermita and ending at the church on the Balcon de Europa.

There are more processions throughout the week, 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/or 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.

A good spot to watch all the processions is near to the chemists (Farmacia) on Calle Pintada, or you can join the crowds on the Balcon de Europa.

More information including times and routes below.
