Semana Santa Spain

Each year, Holy Week celebrations erupt all around Spain, with each city putting its own twist on their festivities. Usually, these include processions, carnivals, street music and religious-themed plays, but this year the celebrations are private. These masked bearers usually engage in sombre activities. Semana Santa this year is going to be from April 5th to 12th, which means public holidays, a good deal of eating and drinking and lots of processions. Associations known as cofradías or ‘brotherhoods’ (whose members take part in the processions) have strong traditional roots in Spanish culture, with many dating back to the Middle Ages.
