Easter 2015 in Santiago de Compostela


Staff member

The program for the processions and the Cultural Events for the 2015 Easter week has now been presented. See attached PDF document (Galician only).

Holy Week in the most spiritual World Heritage City

Spring enters Santiago de Compostela accompanied by the awe-inspiring processions of the Holy Week. The magnificent architectural venues of the Holy City give the memorial of Christ’s Passion a unique splendour and particular solemnity, which make it stand out from those in other Spanish localities.

Compostela’s thirteen brotherhoods tour the stone streets in silence, only accompanied by the piercing sound of bugles and the deep rhythm of drums. Eyes gaze upwards at the pointed hoods, the processional crosses under the towers, the venerated statues that almost touch the balconies and gargoyles, while the processions advance through the night mist.

Compostela’s Holy Week also features the Contemplative Music Festival, an international concert programme that “takes over” the city’s main monumental churches to offer an enriching tour of the world’s sacred music.

And it is also time to penetrate the intimacy of churches and convents, or to enjoy exciting guided visits and one-day tours: Rías Baixas and Finisterre, the magical End of the Earth.

Come join Santiago de Compostela’s Holy Week and develop a “passion” for the city.
