Easter Week Vinaros
Easter Week Vinaros-Semana Santa-Semanta Santa
Festival Date: 01-04-2015
Easter Week in Vinaros, like most Spanish towns and villages, is entirely different to what we experience in the UK, Ireland and many other countries. Semana Santa as it is called in Spanish (or in Catalan – Semanta Santa). PLEASE NOTE that each year the date listed is around 9 days before Easter Sunday itself, on this blog, and in 2015 Easter Sunday falls on the 5th April, therefore the starting date is approximate, and you can also check the specific site below for even more information.
In Vinaros there are three main processions- one normally at 9pm on Holy Thurday night, another at the same time on Good Friday night and then on the morning of Easter Sunday, at 10.30, there is what is called the Encentro, which means the Meeting. Various choirs take part, who are accompanies by organ and trumpet playing.
