As one of the most treasured bank holidays of the year, Easter or Semana Santa here in Spain is a big affair. More than just having the children at home, these holidays signal the real start of summer. If you are in Andalucia over Easter or are inspired to pack a bag and come over, here are a few suggestions for what you can do.
Watch a procession
If you have never seen one, then we recommend you do. Semana Santa processions are magnificent. The smell of incense and fresh flowers and the sound of saeta religious song announce the arrival of the ornate sculptures – tronos – which can take up to 200 people to carry!
These huge sculptures are accompanied by vast swathes of religious brotherhood members – Nazarenes – dressed in coloured robes and long conical hoods, while the parades often last more than an hour. On Easter Sunday, processions are a substantially more joyous affair and Málaga is one the best places to take in the sights and sounds being one of the largest parades.
With longer days and generally nicer temperatures, this is the perfect time of year to book in a few games of golf on one of the more challenging courses in the area. It is a hugely social activity, so whatever level you are at or however competitive you are, get together with some friends and book a tee time. There are some stunning courses in the Costa del Sol and this time of year is classed as peak season so make sure you book.
Oh the Costa del Sol has it all! Strictly speaking the skiing is available in the neighbouring Sierra Nevada but being just an hour or so from Malaga, you can enjoy some time on the slopes before heading back to the beaches! All 124 runs and 21 ski lifts are open until 5th May and there’s between one and three metres of decent packed powder, so conditions will be perfect for the Granada resort’s much-famed “bluebird days” on the slopes, whether skiing or snowboarding.
Explore an inland village
Some of the inland villages or pueblos offer the most beautiful scenery and views. Some are off the beaten track and may appeal to you if bustling Easter beaches don’t. Spring is the ideal to explore cobbled streets as the temperatures are not too high. Mijas Pueblo, Ojen and Casares are but a few of the hidden gems away from the coast.
Enjoy some art and culture
Any trip to the Costa del Sol should include a day out in Malaga. Whatever the weather there are art galleries and museums to visit including the Picasso Museum or the Carmen Thyssen. Historical buildings like the Catedral de la Encarnacion and the Alcazabar and the Botanical Gardens. After all this you could partake in a little local wine and tapas. Malaga has so much to offer you could spend the entire holiday weekend here.
If any of this has inspired you to come and live in Spain or buy a holiday home here, we have an excellent selection of properties in Marbella and throughout Andalucia to suit many budgets and tastes so contact us today here at Bromley Estates Marbella or get in touch using our online message service or by emailing email@example.com.
