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

Semana Santa (Holy Week, Easter) is the second biggest fiesta in Valencia after Las Fallas. Ten days packed with colourful processions in the maritime district of Cabanyal. Although it is a world-wide celebration, Valencia has its unique features. It has the most colours in Spain - there are 28 brotherhoods participating, and each has their own uniform and regalia. Well worth seeing it live, but if you can't, you will see all those colours on display in this museum - all of the uniforms, imagenes, and regalia. The screens will also run videos of all the processions for you to get a taste.
