Easter processions

Semana Santa

We love to go to Spain, walking in the hills in Andalusia. Our favourite time to go is the week before Easter, known in Spain as Semana Santa. The local villages hold fantastic processions and celebrations – but we also got the chance to see what was happening in the bigger town of Vélez-Málaga. This story gives you a taster.

It was thirsty work!

There was a big military parade

we lost track of time.

There was something for everyone.

But it was very tiring

It was a really lovely experience and the locals were very friendly. The festival continued late into the night.

The sun was setting as we started to make our way back.

Adiós España y gracias
