Holy week and Easter

Holy week and Easter

Organized by the Association of Guilds, these celebrations go back more than a hundred and fifty years, according to conservative texts. The Holy Week begins in Villena on Ash Friday, with the transfer of the floats to the Iglesia Arciprestal de Santiago, from where the 11 guilds and brotherhoods begin their procession. Especially emotional is the Procession of the Encounter between the image of Our Lady of Solitude and Our Father Jesus, culminating moment which is accompanied with the chant of a saeta.
