Holy Week in Ferrol
Processions with maritime spirit.
The Easter week celebrations in Ferrol are some of the most spectacular in northern Spain. The town’s maritime and military tradition gives this celebration a unique atmosphere, commemorating the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The event has a sober beauty and is spectacular on account of the vivid colours worn by the members of the different hermandades (brotherhoods/religious associations), as they walk in procession through the streets, carrying statues of the saints, known as pasos, to the rhythm of drums and music bands. Of the most popular, special mention should be made of the Caladiños (one of Ferrol’s oldest pasos), the Santo Encuentro and the Good Friday processions.
