The Calendars of Events are completely dominated by Easter, there are over 25 Parade programmes!! From Friday the 8th April through to Easter Sunday on the 16th April there are day time, night time, silent, bare feet, candle lit and even drum processions! Many of the fiestas have been declared as being of International Tourist Interest so are well worth experiencing.
Remember that both Thursday 13th and Friday 14th are Public Holidays in Spain, so many of the local shops and businesses will be closed.
