Ávila has been holding its Easter week celebrations since the 16th century.

Outstanding amongst the many commemorative events is the Miserere procession held on Easter Tuesday. The Miserere is sung throughout this nocturnal parade where no other sound can be heard. Maundy Thursday sees the Pasos procession which has been held every year since it began in the 16th century. On Good Friday it is also well worth seeing the Penitentiary Stations of the Cross. They run through the walled old town of Ávila, which has the UNESCO World Heritage designation. The Easter week celebrations come to an end with a people’s meal that brings many people together at the Resucitado Shrine.

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.
