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.

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.
The historic quarter of the city is located on the higher side of the hill. Its monuments include the church of Santa María la Mayor, from the 16th century (although some evidence suggests that it dates back to the 13th century); the conventual church of Madre de Dios, founded in 1510, and the old castle-citadel, from the 9th century, with several gateways to the walled enclosure. At the square Plaza de la Constitución, next to the office buildings, we find the house of Monte, from the 18th century, and adjacent to the square, the house of Tercia, from the late 18th century, which at present houses the Municipal Museum of History
