Easter processions - Setenil de las Bodegas

Postby KarenD » Tue Mar 06, 2012 8:49 am


Last year on Good Friday we saw a procession in Setenil by the foreign legion. Does anyone know if it will be on again this Easter, or how I can find out?

Usually all a town's Semana Santa parades take place on the same day at the same time, following the exact same route, year in, year out...weather permitting.

I'm sure that Hillybilly is correct with her information, and I've found that most of the various Town Halls have websites which detail coming events...worth checking..

And for anyone interested the 'Foreign Legion' is now called the Spanish Legion, you can identify them by the red tassel and braiding on their caps..
They have several bases around Spain, and most of their training takes place at Ronda, I believe...
I came across the original Spanish Foreign Legion in the 1960's, they were a great 'bunch' of blokes, good friends..but bad enemies... :crazy:
