Festivals in Jaen

 

Holy Week

Holy Week is the most important cultural, religious and artistic event in Jaen due to the immense number of elements of great tradition and cultural roots—among them, the popular steps, the Nazarenes, the brotherhoods, the “saetas” and the “costaleros”.

Throughout the centuries, the monumental processions of Jaen have evolved significantly in terms of manners, shapes and modes, but the original content of the brotherhoods has been kept almost entirely intact.
 
These brotherhoods are made up of individuals involved in cultural, artistic or liturgical associations, with the “Penance Station” being the external cult par excellence carried out by these brotherhoods.

As in many other Spanish cities, the celebration begins on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter Sunday with daily processions containing images of the Passion of Christ.

These brotherhoods are organized in the Association of Brotherhoods of the City of Jaen, which decide on the order of the processions and their respective days. It is a celebration of immense tourist attraction and attracts a large number of tourists every year.
