Holy Week in Córdoba 2018
Holy Week will be celebrated from March 25 to April 1, 2018.
Holy Week, as the annual commemoration of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ, is the greatest event at the beginning of spring, most of the Cordobans with a great tradition living it. Each year attracts thousands of curious tourists to see and feel how they live these days so commemorative for the Catholic religion.
Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday with the La Borriquita procession and ends on Resurrection Sunday with the procession of El Resucitado. During this week, a total of 37 Brotherhoods and Brotherhoods participate in it; they leave in procession carrying their titular images through the streets of Córdoba. Images that can be steps of mysteries or steps of pallium.
Some of these Confraternities of Penance have been founded several centuries ago, others, on the other hand, are of more recent creation. Among the most outstanding are the Confraternities of the Rescued, Animas, Las Angustias, El Caído, El Cristo de Gracia and Los Dolores.
If until now the official career was on the street Claudio Marcelo and Plaza de las Tendillas, in 2017 the official race will move to the surroundings of the Mosque-Cathedral. The common route for all the brotherhoods will start at the Puerta del Puente and then continue along Torrijos street. The entrance to the Patio de los Naranjos will be through the Puerta del Perdón and the exit through Santa Catalina to finally pass through Magistral González Francés street and end at the intersection with Cardenal González street.
