Easter Events of Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Valencia, Spain

Easter Events of Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Valencia, Spain

Finally comes the Easter Sunday. From the early hours of the morning the joy of Resurrection of Christ spreads through the maritime district. The somber and tragic processions of the past few days will be replaced with joyful parades showered by flower petals.

In the first part of the day the Brotherhoods will get busy with two things. First, many places in the district will have processions to commemorate the Holy Encounter of Mother with Resurrected Son. It is staged with the imagenes of Mary and Jesus. The Catholics are particularly fond of this episode. Secondly, after those processions, the Brotherhoods will run around the houses of district, making sure that even those who are ill, or incapacitated, and can't get out of the house, will get the news of Christ's Resurrection. Unforunately we can't give you any details for those events, since they will happen throughout the district in individual houses.

At 1pm all the Brotherhoods will get together for the last big celebration of Easter - the Parade of Resurrection.

The Parade of Resurrection is one of the three biggest events of the entire Semana Santa Marinera in Valencia. Don't miss it!
