Holy Week on Mallorca

Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is one of the most important and widely-practiced holy festivals in the country of Spain, including on the island of Mallorca.

During this week in March, the events surrounding the passion of the Christ are recalled.

Palm Sunday marks the start of the week, when people flock to the island’s churches to be blessed with palms and olive branches.

However, in the evening, this solemn and centuries-old practice gives way to colourful parades marching through the streets, as people celebrate Holy Week.

Then, on Maundy Thursday, a more sombre procession occurs, named La Sang.

During this time, the crucified Jesus Christ is represented and is carried through the streets, in an effort to symbolise what the time of Easter and the religion of Christianity mean.

Visitors to Mallorca during this time will have an excellent chance to see a traditional festival, as well as what Mallorca is really like away from the tourist areas.

Why not book the Caves of Drach (South) tour in advance?
