Museo de la Semana Santa
Located inside the former Hospital of San Julian, the Museo de la Semana Santa invites visitors to explore behind-the-scenes of a Holy Week procession in Málaga. There are several rooms showcasing processional robes and thrones, as well as fine art and music related to the Semana Santa. The exhibitions highlight the evolution of the Holy Week traditions and conclude with a video documentary. The museum also houses a large collection of the official publicity posters for Holy Week in Malaga and a room dedicated to presenting five centuries of religious brotherhoods (Cofradía) in Málaga with displays of objects and documents.
The museum is definitely worth a visit just to see the architecture of the building, including a courtyard framed by white marble columns and an elegant staircase leading to the top floor, as well as the beautiful Church of the Hospital of San Julián where visitors can gain an insight into the reality of life as part of a religious brotherhood.
