Palm Sunday Procession through Ronda in Andalusia

To the Spaniards the Holy weeks is indeed holy – and that's the reason why they celebrate it. Especially in the south, in Andalusia it is celebrated at a large scale. During the whole Holy Week many processions throughout the cities take place. More than a hundert people are part of those processions.

The Processions

In Spain many so-called hermandades – brotherhoods – exist and in Semana Santa – Holy Week – they march through the streets. Those processions take many hours, because the thrones of Jesus and Mary weigh up to a couple of tons and are carried by men.

The Nazarenos walk on top of the procession followed by a throne with Jesus. After them a marching band, then more Nazarenos, the throne with Mary and then another marching band.

Here is a short video to show you how it feels like to be right there:
