SEMANA SANTA In Spain celebrations for Semana Santa (Holy Week) are often spectacular. Viernes Santo, Sábado Santo and Domingo de Resurrección (Good Friday, Holy Saturday, Easter Sunday) are all national public holidays, with additional days being given as local holidays. There are long processions through the streets with pasos - religious floats and sculptures. Religious statues are carried along on the shoulders of the cofrades, members of the cofradías or lay brotherhoods that organize the processions. These are accompanied by penitentes and nazarenos generally wearing long hooded robes. Seville, Málaga and Valladolid are particularly well known for their spectacular Holy Week processions.

SEMANA SANTA
Semana Santa (Holy Week) runs from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, the day when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. The activities of the week can be more or less religious in nature, depending on the region. In Spain (especially in Andalusia) there are spectacular nocturnal processions with “pasos”, which are floats carried through the streets on the shoulders of bearers, with huge banks of candles and dramatic sculptures of Jesus - crucified or resurrected - or the Virgin Mary, dressed in elaborate, jewel-studded costumes. The “pasos” are solemnly escorted by “cofrades”, hooded members of a Catholic brotherhood or “cofradía”, who march in step to the beat of a drum. Some walk barefoot and flagellate themselves as a sign of Christian repentance, while the atmosphere on other processions can be much more festive.
