Holy Week is here!

This Sunday, the 9th of April, Holy Week officially starts in Spain as we celebrate Palm Sunday.

In the past we have recommended you not to miss the amazing procession that takes place on this date in Fuengirola city centre, and this time we would like to do the same as it is one of the most beautiful events of our Holy Week.

The image that will be taken out in procession was created by Álvaro Abrines, a young sculptor from Seville who also created a similar figure for the town of Rute in Cordoba, and two of its most outstanding features are the peacefulness in Jesus eyes and the presence of a snail on its base.

This throne is commonly known as “La Pollinica” as one of its figures is a very young donkey which in Spanish is known as a “pollino”. This donkey accompanies the figure of Jesus as the Bible states that he entered Jerusalem on a donkey.

If you have the fortune of currently being on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend you to experience how a traditional Spanish Holy Week is. If you wish so try not to miss this beautiful procession that will pass through the city centre. It will start on Sunday around midday, when the throne of Jesus will leave the San Jose Church, and will finish at around 3:00 P.M.

Enjoy our beautiful Holy Week!
