Holy week

The religious guilds pass through the streets with the procession

Of a marked religious character, this is also is a major social and cultural event undertaken by residents with emotion and devotion. The processions, which are comprised of guilds passing along the main thoroughfares of the town carrying religious images, are the best demonstrations of Andalusian spirit. Processions are held on Palm Sunday and Good Friday. Easter is celebrated on different dates each year, always after the first full moon of the spring equinox.

Easter in Torremolinos is one of the religious traditions touching the heart of all the people in this town, and is also really spectacular for our visitors. Processions on Good Friday are organised by the Brotherhood Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno y María Santísima de los Dolores y Jesús a su entrada en Jerusalén y Santa María Reina de la Paz.

On the morning of Good Friday, a solemn Via Crucis takes place along La Carihuela’s streets (Vía Crucis del Santísimo Cristo de los Milagros), departing from Nuestra Señora del Carmen parish church in this former fisherman’s area.

Holy Week in Torremolinos is one of the religious traditions that has deeply embedded in the town and that at the same time has great spectacle for visitors. There are two brotherhoods that take part in this peculiar procession: that of Our Father Jesus Nazareno and María Santísima de los Dolores, and the Brotherhood of the Holy Christ of the Sentence and Our Lady of Calvary in their Sorrowful Mysteries.
