Celebrated from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, Holy Week is one of the most important traditions in Cordoba. It is closely linked to the enormous importance that the reconquest had within the idiosyncrasies of this beautiful Andalusian city.
As in other Spanish towns, Holy Week in Cordoba is characterized by spectacular processions in which different brotherhoods carry out their ceremonial tours along the streets.
They do this in the midst of a religious fervour, with an elaborate aesthetic in which the most dramatic moments of the major week are staged together with the penitents.
This elaborate ritual, in which up to six pro-brotherhoods and more than 35 brotherhoods participate in total silence or with musical accompaniment, occurs in many places with a great tradition in the city, such as around the imposing Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba.
It is a great celebration that brings together tens of thousands of faithful, as well as a huge number of visitors. That is why it has become one of the main tourist events in the city.
Holy Week in Cordoba has been declared a Festival of National Tourist Interest.
