Dating traditions spain
It can truly be said that Spain is immersed in traditions that emphasize their regional identity and differences.Visiting Spain during any holiday is an exciting and enthralling adventure that visitors will never forget.More than 20 brotherhoods organize 16 processions against the beautiful backdrop of the UNESCO World Heritage Site city. Valladolid’s processions are renowned for their pasos (floats) which carry religious statues dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.The city’s National Sculpture Museum donates over 100 images to be used during the processions, making it one of Spain’s most artistic parades. While chocolate Easter eggs are becoming more and more popular, they are not traditionally a big part of Easter celebrations in Spain.
In most Easter processions, participants carry large floats, or pasos, that are adorned with religious sculptures depicting Jesus or Mary, some by renowned Spanish artists.But that’s not to say Spaniards don’t have special sweet treats for Holy Week.Torrijas are a traditional Semana Santa sweet snack of bread soaked in milk and egg before being fried and served with sugar or honey, and are available all over the country during Holy Week.Associations known as cofradías or ‘brotherhoods’ (whose members take part in the processions) are a strong tradition in Spain, with many dating back to the Middle Ages.Semana Santa processions are also known as ‘penance processions’ and involve members of the brotherhood (nazarenos) parading from their church to the city’s cathedral.
I’m not so bothered about Easter, what else is on over the public holiday Ferrari Land opens just in time for the Easter holidays.
