Semana Santa de Cáceres
Solemnity and religious fervour in a unique setting
Cáceres has interesting Easter week celebrations. We should make special mention of the beautiful religious statues, the traditional music that washes over Cáceres’s stunning monuments and buildings, and the cofradías (religious associations), some of which date back to the 15th century, that take part in the Easter processions. Religious icons, some of which have a huge historic-artistic value, accompany members of the cofradías, on their processions through the city’s historic centre, filling Cáceres with solemnity and religious fervour. At this time there are no shortage of saetas (songs dedicated to the religious icons), most of which are sung anonymously.
