Holy Week in Alicante, Spain

Easter in Alicante

Every year, a week of celebrations erupts on to the streets of every big city in Spain. Each city does something a bit different but you can be guaranteed it will include processions of Catholic followers, carnivals, street music and religious themed displays by masked penitents. These church members carry "pasos" - displays of The Virgin Mary, Jesus and scenes from the Bible on their shoulders, through the city's streets. Many of these floats have taken months to prepare as they are richly adorned with lace, jewels and flowers.
