Holy week in Malaga



Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is an important religious festival celebrated in Spain and many other countries with large Catholic populations. Malaga, a city located in the southern region of Andalusia, is known for its vibrant and colorful Semana Santa celebrations.

During the week leading up to Easter Sunday, Malaga's streets are filled with processions of elaborately decorated floats, called "pasos," that depict scenes from the Passion of Christ. These processions are organized by the city's numerous religious brotherhoods, known as "cofradías," who don elaborate robes and hoods as they carry the pasos through the streets.

The processions are accompanied by music, including traditional marches played by brass bands, and often involve thousands of people. The atmosphere in Malaga during Semana Santa is lively and festive, with locals and visitors alike taking part in the celebrations.

If you're planning to visit Malaga during Semana Santa, be prepared for large crowds and road closures. It's a good idea to book your accommodations and transportation in advance, and to plan your itinerary around the procession schedules, which are available online and at tourist information centers.
