attracts millions of visitors to the capital of the Costa del Sol. Apart from
the religious character it is also a social and cultural event that is worth
During this time around the city there are many processions commemorating the passion of Jesus Christ. You can see the huge "thrones", with realistic wooden sculptures that represent biblical figures, carried by hundreds of men on their shoulders. It is very typical that the "thrones" are accompanied by musical bands that contribute to create a spiritual environment.
To see the processions it is a good idea to choose a place along the official route that runs through the Alameda Principal, Calle Larios and Calle Granada, since all the brotherhoods have to pass there.
