How to celebrate Semana Santa like a Spaniard?

Holy easter week in Andalucia Spain is a biggest religious festival of the year and folkloric party based in catholic and processions. ‘Maundy Thursday’ and ‘Good Friday’ are national holidays (April or March) knew as ‘Jueves Santo‘ and ‘Viernes Santo‘.

Public holidays are a good deal of eating and drinking. Easter is a time for Spaniards to take to the streets and watch processions, as well as enjoy some time off work in the company of their families and friends.

Processions take place throughout Holy Week in Spain, parading from their church to the city’s cathedral through the streets.

If you are after the most glamorous, ornate and lively Semana Santa parades, look no further than Andalusia, especially in Almeria, Sevilla or Malaga cities.

What should I eat?

‘Pestiños’ are little pastries popular especially in Andalusia. Sesame-flavoured dough is fried then glazed with honey or sugar.

‘Torrijas’ are a traditional Semana Santa sweet snack of bread soaked in milk and egg before being fried and served with sugar or honey.

‘Roscos’ and ‘Papaviejos’ are desserts also typical of Easter.
