Semana Santa de Ocaña
 Easter Week in Ocaña
From March 24, 2013 to March 31, 2013
 

 

 

 

 

Ocaña, in the province of Toledo, has been holding its Easter week celebrations in the streets of the town for 400 years. Its processions stand out for their order and silence, as well as for their colour. Especially noteworthy is the Good Friday procession – it has moving statues.

Easter week is one of the most heartfelt and deep-rooted fiestas celebrated in Spain. This commemoration has centuries of history and tradition, remembering the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The streets of the majority of Spain's cities, towns and villages become the stage for religious fervour and devotion, combining grief and meditation in memory of Christ's death. Music, art and colour come together in magical processions - solemn parades in which crowds of people accompany religious images on their route through the streets.

Ocana collection of buildings, arranged on a medieval layout, with large houses, palaces, convents and churches, is one of the most important in Castilla-La Mancha.
The main square is the town's nerve centre. The main streets which make up the historic quarter start from here. It was built in 1777, has a rectangular plan with 18 arches on the two larger sides and 17 on the two smaller ones, and two floors of balconies and lofts. Outstanding among the religious buildings in Ocana are the parish church of San Juan Bautista, from the 13th to the 17th centuries; and the convents of Santo Domingo, a Renaissance structure with a cloister on two levels; that of the Carmelite Descalzas, the Dominican nuns of Santa María and the convent of the Order of St. Bernard, all from the 16th century. From among Ocana civil buildings it is worth mentioning the palace of the Cárdenas family; the tower of San Martín, which is Renaissance and from the 16th century; the pillory column of justice, from the 15th century; and the Lope de Vega theatre, a former Jesuit college, outstanding in which is the stone main front and the Mudejar tower. On the outskirts of the city is the Grand Fountain, a monumental work from the 16th century, whose external part is made up of a wide stone gallery covered and decorated with 22 Tuscan pillasters and a running entablature.
