Semana Santa – Holy Week

Across Spain, Easter Time is a special time of celebration known to Spaniards as “Semana Santa”. Most villages, towns and cities have lavish fiestas, parades and celebrations – all are welcome!.

Alicante (About 25 minutes from Hondon Valley) has an enormous event with 10’s of thousands attending. The streets are lined with people to watch the processions of the ‘brotherhoods’, bands, dancing and religious ceremonies – some very solemn!

They say the best view for Alicante is on the hill of the castle over-looking the coast road / marina.
