Semana Santa (Holy Week) In Spain

You’ve never seen the Passion of Christ celebrated quite like they do in Spain. Holy Week (25th March – 1st April) is one of Spain’s most authentic and elaborate celebrations, with each region of the country commemorating Easter week in it’s own way.

If you’re looking for extravagant processions on the streets and colourful displays of religious fervour head to Seville for the week. If a traditional commemoration of the holiday is more up your alley, head to Castille and Leon where eight of the region’s cities have been declared sites of International Tourism for their holy week celebrations.
