10 cities in Spain to experience Holy Week

Holy Week
Easter is approaching, one of the most important dates on the Spanish holiday calendar, so surely you have already decided the destination for your vacation. Of course, if you are still not sure, we recommend that you do not miss anything that we tell you below, especially if you want to live these days intensely. And, although it is a fantastic idea to take advantage of these days to escape to the beach, it is also highly recommended to do inland tourism and discover local traditions.

You already know that in many corners of the country Holy Week is celebrated with great intensity. In fact, the masses and processions multiply during these days. And even if you are not religious, it is worth discovering with what devotion these festivals are celebrated in many places in Spain. Today at Vuela Viajes we want to propose 10 Spanish cities where you can live the authentic Holy Week in an intense way. Of course, we are open to suggestions, so do not hesitate to suggest destinations.

Seville

Seville
If there is a region of Spain in which Holy Week is lived intensely, it is Andalusia. In fact, you can enjoy incredible celebrations in any corner of this autonomous community. Of course, today we want to highlight three cities. The first of them is Seville, where more than 60 brotherhoods roam the streets during these days. La Madrug谩 deserves special mention, the most special night of all.
