Semana Santa de El Ferrol
 Easter Week in El Ferrol
From March 24, 2013 to March 31, 2013
 
 
Holy Week in El Ferrol
Processions with maritime spirit
 
The Easter week celebrations in Ferrol are some of the most spectacular in northern Spain. The town’s maritime and military tradition gives this celebration a unique atmosphere, commemorating the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The event has a sober beauty and is spectacular on account of the vivid colours worn by the members of the different hermandades (brotherhoods/religious associations), as they walk in procession through the streets, carrying statues of the saints, known as pasos, to the rhythm of drums and music bands. Of the most popular, special mention should be made of the Caladiños (one of Ferrol’s oldest pasos), the Santo Encuentro and the Good Friday processions

The sea has been a vital constant in the growth of this town, first as a fishing village and later as a military stronghold.
This town is 52 kilometres from La Coruña. It is full of contrasts, and the charm of its roots as a fishing village lives on in its streets and traditions. Ferrol old town, the Modernist La Magdalena neighbourhood, the La Cortina defensive walls (18th century), and the castles of San Felipe and La Palma are just some of its attractions. The main event in the town, however, is the Easter week celebrations, which have the National Tourist Interest designation. They are usually held in March or April, depending on when Easter falls.
