Holy Week in Granada

A festival of International Tourist Interest

Holy Week in Granada is a fascinating experience. Brotherhoods of silence and neighbourhood confraternities with their hoods, an authentic display of Andalusian sentiment in the evocative city of Granada.

Processions of stunningly beautiful images march through the streets of Zaidín, Albaicín, Realejo and the historical city centre for the sole purpose of conveying the message of Jesus Crucified, Dead and Resurrected to the spectators along the way. The message is conveyed with floats representing the Mysteries, such as the Three Falls, Last Supper, Garden of Gethsemane, Cristo del Perdón, La Sentencia, the Cristo del Trabajo in Zaidín, La Sagrada Lanzada or El Despojado, and the floats of Jesus, like the city's Sagrado Protector, Cristo del Silencio, Favores, Expiración, , El Rescate and Cristo Resucitado.

The processions wind through a unique setting, with the striking colours of the cortèges blending in with light from the snow on the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the green plains of Granada and the blue Easter sky.

Granada, with its Holy Week, brotherhoods, religious services and gastronomy invite you to share in these events like any other local resident.
