Overview of festivals and celebrations in Spain
Spaniards are deeply religious people, and therefore religious holidays are treated with great honor here. One of the most iconic spiritual events is the Semana Santa or Holy Week. The solemn procession takes place on the Passion Week on the eve of Easter. Sculptural compositions or Pasos, depicting different religious subjects, are taken outdoors. Pasos are huge; they feature very lavish design, which makes the costumed procession incredibly spectacular. In the capital of Andalusia, Seville, the St. Anne's Day in July is celebrated with a grand scale. A large number of outdoor terraces open to the city. Sitting at a table, you can enjoy traditional music or dances. Before the start of Lent, Carnestoltes carnival is held in Barcelona. It starts on Fat Thursday and lasts until Sunday. The holiday ends with the burning of the Carnival King.
