Opis

This spectacular event features public participation, and a rich artistic heritage thanks to the figures created by sculptors of the stature of Salzillo. This is Easter week in Orihuela, in the province of Alicante. The origins of these celebrations date back to the 16th century.

Highlights among the numerous events that take place include the procession of "El Silencio", which takes place on Good Friday and convenes over 10,000 people. The procession passes through the old town, where the only sounds to be heard are the penitents' footsteps, and the dark night is illuminated by the lanterns of the participants. A chant dating from the 18th century –the "Canto de la Pasión"– dispels the stillness as Christ passes. The procession on the morning of Easter Saturday, known as the "Caballero Cubierto" serves as a complete contrast, and is unique due to the papal bull that declares that only one person can wear a hat inside the church. This is an old tradition that lives on to this day in Orihuela.

Easter week is one of Spain's most heartfelt and deeply-rooted festivals. Its history and tradition go back many centuries, and commemorate the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The streets of many of Spain's cities, towns and villages are transformed into scenes of religious fervour and devotion, where grief and meditation are combined as Christ's death is relived. Music, art and colour come together in these magical processions –solemn parades in which throngs of people accompany the religious images on their route through the streets.
