Participatory, austere and with great artistic beauty. The Easter week celebrations in Ciudad Real are of great artistic and cultural interest. They have a marked Baroque style and more than 15,000 people, especially women and young people, take part in the festivities. Maundy Thursday and Good Friday see processions by the oldest brotherhoods, with statues by famous sculptors, some of which have centuries of history.
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 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.
