Semana Santa de Baena Easter Week in Baena From March 24, 2013 to March 31, 2013
Easter Week of Baena (Córdoba)
Religion, colour and drums
The Baena Easter week celebrations are the most important fiesta in the town (Cordoba province). Although it is a religious fiesta, the town is filled with noise and colour for a few days, to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ. Among the numerous traditional functions and processions, we should make special mention of the “Judio de Baena” (the Baena Jew). These characters play their drums ceaselessly throughout the procession, dressed in a particularly striking costume (red jacket, gold helmet and black or white plumes). Another of the gems of this fiesta is the presence of beautiful religious statues in the processions, such as the Gothic “El Perdón” Christ and the “Cristo de la Expiración”, which has received the Cultural Property designation.
Province: Cordoba / Autonomous Region: Andalusia
Baena sits on the side of a hill, forming a network of narrow, winding streets, dotted by traditional houses and ancestral homes. A landscape of olive orchards and cereal fields surrounds it.
