Holy week festivities

The protagonists of these festivities are nine Confraternities and a Fraternity which, with the “Centuria Romana”, come to the processions. On Palm Sunday palm leaves are shown and the mantilla procession is celebrated. On the Monday, fourteen groups of the Vía Crucis take to the streets. Easter Sunday is represented with the meeting of the Holiest Virgin and the procession of the Resurrection, in which the image of the “Immaculate Conception in mourning” is paraded, accompanied by the Confraternities. The Holy Week of Guardamar is characterised by the staging of the ‘Passion’ in the streets of the locality. There are all together four acts: Palm Sunday, entry into Jerusalem; on Holy Monday, the staging of the Prayer of the Garden, and the Capturing of Jesus, together with the Confraternity of Jesus' Prayer in the Garden of the Olive trees. On Holy Tuesday, the staging of the washing of Pilate with the procession of the Brotherhood of the “Paso” of the Flagellation of the Lord and on Friday morning, the staging of the meeting of the “Verónica”.
