Semana Santa is almost upon us again and the Easter holidays are a very important festival in Spain, celebrated this year from 5th to the 12th of April 2020. Due to the coronavirus outbreak in Spain, this year's celebrations may be a little different.
In Spain, the Holy Week of Easter is more than chocolate eggs and bunnies; it is a commemoration of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, celebrated in the most sombre, most extravagantly Catholic way possible.
Sobriety, solemnity, passion and fervour are concentrated in the streets of Zaragoza during one of the most exciting and traditional festivals of the year: the Holy Week of Easter. In this city, the proclamation gives way to multiple processions promoted by the brotherhoods.
