Easter Holy Week/Semana Santa
29th March 2015 to 6th April 2015
Easter Week, also known as Holy Week or Semana Santa is the most important religious celebration of the year, commemorating the death and resurrection of Jesus. Easter processions are held throughout the week, starting on Palm Sunday and ending on Easter Sunday and feature rich religious traditions, culture and music. Maundy Thursday and Good Friday processions are the more dramatic and somber, while the Easter parades are more celebratory and festive. Special masses are held all week long at the main church in Old Town and every other Catholic Church in the city. Tronos (floats/thrones) parade through the streets telling biblical scenes and the story of Jesus. Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday are all observed as public holidays, so businesses, public services, and supermarkets will be closed. Some restaurants will remain open, but call ahead before heading out.
