Easter Sunday in Marbella 2015
Easter (Semana Santa) in Marbella Is all about religious processions, sun, sea and lunch on the beach. This year, the weather was glorious with temperatures peaking at 25°C. There were just a few delicate clouds in the sky and no rain.
As usual, the town was busy with lots of visitors from Madrid and the other Spanish cities and a few thousand foreign visitors. Marbella is still extremely popular for people wanting to take an Easter break. The procession on Easter Sunday includes two tronos (thrones) and is a celebration of Jesus´s resurrection. It is the culmination of the Passion of Christ, otherwise known as Easter Week or Semana Santa. As you will see from our pictures below, the main difference between this procession and all the others is the hoods worn by the various brotherhoods.
This is a joyous procession – a happy and thankful time without the need for penitence. The children join in and there are lots of flowers. All the brotherhoods are represented and there are lots of different coloured robes and banners with the bands playing uplifting music. Marbella’s Mayoress Ángeles Muñoz was there to support the event and even participated in the walk. She chatted with other walkers and the press helping to get the Word out about the good work Triple A are doing. A great day to end a great week here in Marbella!
