      Easter week in Jerez de la Frontera

      During this celebration, the Easter brotherhoods process through the old town of Jerez de la Frontera in a stunning display of art and feeling.

      A total of 44 brotherhoods take part in the Easter processions in Jerez. The oldest brotherhoods date back to the 15th century, while the "youngest" had its first procession in 1973. They all make a stop at the Cathedral on their way - known as the station of penitence. Some of the most traditional brotherhoods are those of La Borriquita, El Transporte, La Coronación and Las Angustias. Of all the processions, the ones on Good Friday stand out especially, such as the Most Sacred Christ of the Exaltation, The Virgin of Solitude and the Holy Burial.

      Easter week is one of the most heartfelt and deep-rooted fiestas celebrated in Spain. This commemoration has centuries of history and tradition, remembering the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The streets of the majority of Spain's cities, towns and villages become the stage for religious fervour and devotion, combining grief and meditation in memory of Christ's death. Music, art and colour come together in magical processions - solemn parades in which crowds of people accompany religious images on their route through the streets.
