Semana Santa
Impressive understated processions during the Holy Week (week before Easter) depicting the suffering and resurrection of Christ. Easter is the most celebrated religious festival, in which tradition has left indelible traces.

The “pasos” (the image groups) involved in the processions are huge and heavy. There are scenes of 1500 kg, but there are also 6000 kg of roads. These passos are therefore carried by a majority in a special rhythm. It is even a whole family’s honor to be able to participate in the Semana Santa as “nazareño” (whoever wears the passover). There are also many bullies on the head with a headed head. It is the highlight of the year for most Spaniards! During the Semana Santa there are processions all day, but the most impressive are those on White Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

For the Spaniard, it is something very specific. In Torrevieja there are beautiful processions, but also in Orihuela (city) and Murcia there are processes of national cultural importance. Elche’s Palm Procession (Sunday before Easter) is also of international importance. Keep in mind that thousands of people come to see it. Chairs along the entire procession are for rent.

For many is the meanig of Easter; Findind Easter eggs, have a breakfast in the holiday home or enjoy the sun on the beach. During the Easter holidays, you can easily spend time with family or friends. Book your well-earned peace at CasaLasDunas. The easter eggs are on the Costa Blanca beach are waiting to be found.
