Tarragona Easter Week
Tarragona Easter Week-Setmana Santa
Festival Date: 01-04-2015
For Easter Week Tarragona is a great place to go. You haven’t experienced a traditional Easter celebration until you visit Tarragona during this holy period. This is a huge celebration of the passion, the death and the subsequent resurrection of Christ told through processions, rosaries and masses. On Good Friday afternoon armed ‘soldiers’ embark on centuries old traditional marches as a preparation for the Holy Burial procession. This dates all the way back to 1550 and now has the official declaration of being a Festival of National Heritage Interest.

A New York Times critic, Florence Fabricant, said this about Tarragona: “We left Tarragona feeling as though we had been let in on a wonderful secret that told not only of the reach of ancient Rome, but of other historic periods, layered within and around the city. And that the secret was meant to be shared.”
