Semana Santa in Granada

As it stands today, every city proudly announces the number of festivals that have been awarded the "Fiesta de Interés Internacional". 

Processions take place throughout the province along with Passion Plays as well. There is one more special claim to fame by the provincial capital in that no where else in Andalucia can you experience Semana Santa with the Alhambra in the background.

In Granada city there are more than 30 Catholic brotherhoods and "cofradías" that organise processions and some of the works of art - in the forms of Jesus and Mary - that they carry about the city date back to the 14th century. Later pieces belong to the 16th century.

Villages of special interest in Granada province during Holy Week are Loja and Guadix.
