TITLE: holy week in malaga, Spain
Holy Week in Malaga is a great tradition dating back to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. It is characterized by the procession of thrones and carriers through the streets of the city. The thrones are large wooden structures with high reliefs and carvings of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. These thrones are shouldered by the bearers and are accompanied by religious hymns.
During the procession, the bearers stop to rest, as the weight of the thrones can be quite heavy. Stops are made at different points in the city so that everyone can admire the thrones and pray. The atmosphere of the procession is serene and solemn; all the participants show their devotion and respect for the religion.
Holy Week in Malaga is a unique experience
