Friday of Sorrows:

Holy Week begins in Frigiliana on the Friday before Passion Week. That is because what we call Viernes de Dolores (Friday of Sorrows) begins. This brotherhood was founded on August 14, 1771.

Palm Sunday:

Then we move on to Palm Sunday with the blessing of olive branches and palms in the Hermitage of San Sebastian. From here comes the procession on the way to the church of San Antonio where the holy mass is celebrated.

Holy Thursday:

It is celebrated the Holy Supper the priest washes the feet of twelve neighbors who represent the apostles. In addition, these neighbours are dressed like the apostles and wear some 18th century masks.

Then comes the pass of Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno, Cristo de la Caña and the Virgen de los Dolores (Our Father Jesus of Nazareth, Christ of the Cane and the Virgin of Sorrows).

Holy Week in Frigiliana

Good Friday:

This is the most spectacular day of Holy Week in Frigiliana.

After the celebration of the Way of the Cross through the streets of the village. At dusk in the parish church there is a staging of the death and detachment of Jesus.

Once night falls with the procession of Jesus lying in the Holy Sepulchre carried and accompanied by the brothers of his brotherhood. The tragic sense of passion and death that gathers in the streets of Frigiliana thousands of people in the procession of Solitude. In this procession only women can take part, independently of their race, condition, nationality or creed. In addition, their vesturiario must be strictly of rigorous mourning.

This procession plunges the Old Town into a total and disturbing darkness. The corners where it passes through the faint light of the candles that carry hundreds of women in mourning are illuminated.

This procession is a true spectacle, in which silence is only broken by an arrow sung for this purpose.

Easter Sunday

The Brotherhood of the Resurrected puts an end to the Holy Week celebrations on Easter Sunday. This step leaves at noon accompanied by the Band of Music of the town. While the neighbours from the decorated balconies, throw rose petals.

Holy Week in Ronda, like Seville and Malaga, has the title of Andalusian Tourist Interest, although it is not a provincial capital. There are 15 processions carried out by 14 brotherhoods.

Holy Week in Sevilla commemorates the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, 60 brotherhoods procession to the cathedral of Seville and 11 brotherhoods procession on Friday of Sorrows and Saturday of Passion, but without reaching the cathedral.

Since 1980 it has been a festival of International Tourist Interest.

In addition to the processions, during Easter Week in Sevilla there are also other cults such as novenas, septenarios, quinarios…

A little history of Holy Week of Sevilla

First of all, it is known that there have been brotherhoods since the Middle Ages. And from the 16th century they began to have a greater presence in the street. Although they did not reach the cathedral, the procession was only between nearby churches.

In 1604, Cardinal Fernando Niño de Guevara established some rules: the confraternities were obliged to carry out the penitence station to the cathedral and those of Triana had to carry it to the church of Santa Ana.

Holy Week of Sevilla

In the nineteenth century Holy Week in Seville had two serious problems. The first of all the French invasion so there were no processions from 1808 to 1810. On the other hand, the disentailment of Mendizábal in 1836 which led to the loss of many properties.

But in resurfaces thanks to the sister of Queen Elizabeth II in 1849. They helped to celebrate Holy Week in Seville by promoting brotherhoods such as that of Montserrat and the Lanzada.

At the end of the 19th century, during the period of Bourbon restoration, the brotherhoods reappeared in number and splendour and they began to be considered a tourist attraction for the city.

In the twentieth century there were also problems during the Second Republic and the Civil War.

After the war it was recovered again and in 1980 together with the Holy Week of Malaga they obtained the title of Cultural Interest.

Sculptors

From the Baroque period to the present day many are the famous sculptors who have made sculptures for the steps and thrones. Among many others stand out:

  • Juan Martínez Montañés
  • Juan de Mesa
  • Andrés de Ocampo
  • Francisco de Ocampo
  • Juan Bautista Vázquez el Viejo

Do you want the car hire of Bahia Sexi to enjoy the weather in San Pedro de Alcantara?

You will need a vehicle to explore San Pedro de Alcantara freely if you don’t have yours. You can make 2 choices:

  • The cheapest way to travel is the public transport. But there is a big disadvantage, because you will have to worry about its schedules and waste time waiting for them.
  • You can also book our car hire with Bahia Sexi. It will offer you freedom and the privacy to explore the region in your own thing.

In addition, if you prefer the second possibility, you can choose your favorite pick up point:

  1. Our service “Meet & Greet” is at you disposal at the Malaga Airport, where our staffs will meet you at the arrivals area to deliver the car rental as soon as you arrive.
  2. We can also meet at the reception hall of your hotel, where our staff will deliver the car rental in San Pedro de Alcantara. In the same way, you can return the car rental without leaving your accommodation. So you can give the key to the receptionist after you park it near.
  3. Our staff will be glad to deliver you the car rental, when you visit our office.

You can book it online to choose your favorite pick up point on our website.

Finally, say that all of these are only 25 minutes from the Malaga Airport in your rental car.
