Holy week - Albacete
The city of Albacete
Visit Albacete during the Easter Week and discovers his eleven brotherhoods of penitents which run through the streets of the city from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.
Discover the processions: the pace to the touch of bugles and drums will captivate you. There are a total of 21 processions to choose from. We recommend you participate in the most bewildering of all, namely the Procession of Silence. It is held during the morning of Holy Thursday; the lights fade on the streets of downtown Albacete, and people come out of their houses to participate in the Procession of Silence. Feel the passion of the pilgrims who walk barefoot and chained in darkness to the rhythm. Another procession of special interest is the one taking place on the Easter Monday starring children who perform miniature reproductions the main paces.
Visit the Easter exhibition that displays sixteen images of Albacete guilds representing the “Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ”.
Visit the towns of the province and meet their Easter customs. Discover Bozainas of Chinchilla, popular wind instruments with attached wooden wheels. Take a look at the Tamborada of Hellin with over twenty thousand drummers dressed in black tunics with red scarves. Do not forget to visit Tobarra during the Easter Week. This manchegan town turns into a continuous roll of drums. This celebration is not only nationally but also internationally famous, being attended by more than thirty thousand people from around the world each year.
