Beschrijving

Teruel , in Aragón, has intense Easter week celebrations with the ever-present sound of drums.

Religious statues, habits and brotherhoods fill the streets of Teruel over these days of celebration. The city comes alive with a host of processions. The most emotive moment is on Good Friday afternoon, with the so-called General Procession. All Teruel's religious brotherhoods take part. It is characterised by its spectacular yet solemn nature, on a route that covers the whole of the city's historic centre, and by the accompanying sound of trumpets and drums. These instruments are almost ever-present in Teruel's Easter week celebrations, with acts such as the “Rompida de la hora” (breaking of the hour) on Good Friday, and the opening procession on the Saturday before Palm Sunday. The fiestas come to an end on the Tuesday after Easter Sunday, with the "Sermón de las Tortillas": this is a day for a huge meal and fun in the countryside that dates back to times of the Catholic conquest.

Easter week is one of the most heartfelt and deep-rooted fiestas celebrated in Spain. This commemoration has centuries of history and tradition, remembering the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The streets of the majority of Spain's cities, towns and villages become the stage for religious fervour and devotion, combining grief and meditation in memory of Christ's death. Music, art and colour come together in magical processions - solemn parades in which crowds of people accompany religious images on their route through the streets.
