The Holy Week that takes place in Toledo has a much more traditional and solemn aura than those in other Spanish cities. This is partly because it is a Castilian city that, at the time, brought together the captaincy of the empire and because, since ancient times, there were monumental steps that were destroyed during the Spanish Civil War.
After said war, the old destroyed steps were replaced by new ones, while others were brought from other Toledo churches and convents with the aim of keeping the tradition alive.
Currently, Holy Week in Toledo is characterized by being introspective and austere, with a ceremony of great beauty. Traditionally, people visit the conventual temples of the city, which usually open their doors to the public during the week.
Another very popular tradition is to enjoy the famous "callejeo" of the city.
The solemnity, beauty and tradition of this Toledo celebration generates significant attraction and attracts many tourists, which is why it was declared a Festival of International Tourist Interest.
