Semana Santa (Holy Week) is one of the most important celebrations in Spain. This is also called Pascua (Easter).


Las celebracionesPeople in towns and villages all over Spain take part in Easter celebrations.


Domingo de Ramos

  • Domingo de Ramos (Palm Sunday) marks the beginning of Holy Week. Many people go to church for a special mass. Children are given a palm branch by their godparents. This represents the olive branches laid on the ground to welcome Jesus into Jerusalem.


Semana Santa en Sevilla

  • Seville has some of the most spectacular and elaborate celebrations.


Las procesiones

  • Large floats called “pasos” make their way through the streets. They have religious figures on them. They are often very elaborate and always very heavy!


Los costaleros

  • The “pasos” are carried by groups of men called “costaleros”.

  • Here they are practising with sandbags. They move very slowly.

Viernes Santo

  • Good Friday is commemorated with very serious and sombre processions. They are usually either silent or accompanied by slow drumming.


Processions can also be accompanied by “una banda de música”.


Los penitentes

“Los penitentes” carry a wooden cross and wear a floppy hood - “un antifaz”. They are often in processions on Good Friday.


Los nazarenos

  • Los nazarenos wear stiff conical hats called “capirotes”.

Sábado santo – Easter Saturday

This is perhaps the most mournful day of processions, as people remember Christ’s burial.


Domingo de la Resurrección – Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday processions are louder and more joyous.

A child’s Easter in Spain

In Cataluña, in northeastern Spain, children are given a “mona” by their godparents. This is an Easter egg or special Easter cake in an amazing design.
