Semana Santa in Costa Blanca:  A Colourful Spectacle

Semana Santa from Sunday 24/03/2024 to 31/03/2024

Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is one of the most impressive and deeply rooted religious celebrations in Spain. In the Costa Blanca region, this week is celebrated in a spectacular way, where tradition, devotion and cultural heritage come together in a colourful spectacle.

Throughout the week, streets are filled with processions carrying images of Christ and the Virgin Mary, accompanied by poignant music and prayers. Each village and town in the Costa Blanca has its own unique way of celebrating Semana Santa, with processions often dating back centuries. One of the most striking features of Semana Santa are the Nazarenos, dressed in long robes and pointed hoods, who walk silently in the processions. The atmosphere is both solemn and festive, with streets decorated with colourful flowers and altars erected along the route.

Semana Santa in the Costa Blanca also offers an excellent opportunity to sample traditional gastronomy. Local specialities such as torrijas (sweet French toast), buñuelos (fritters) and bacalao (salted cod) are served in restaurants and stalls along the processional routes.

Semana Santa is not only a religious event, but also a cultural phenomenon that reflects Spain's rich history and traditions. For Costa Blanca residents, it is a period of deep spiritual reflection and community bonding, where they come together to celebrate and honour their faith.

In short, Semana Santa in Costa Blanca is an unforgettable experience that stimulates the senses and uplifts the spirit. It is a celebration that embodies the essence of Spanish culture and identity, enchanting visitors time and again with its splendour.
