Semana Santa is one of the most popular festivals in Spain. It?s also the oldest and the most significant in Spain, in which the people think of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ after his coming to Jerusalem.
Since the 5th century, the processions represent an essential part of these festivities and are regarded very highly in cities like Seville, Valladolid and Malaga.
On Palm Sunday palms, olive leafs and other trees are consecrated for the following procession in memory of Jesus Christ?s triumphal procession into Jerusalem. Those customs were initiated during the 4th century and are maintained until today.
During the whole week they held special celebrations which are remimesant of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ.
All fraternities of different churches show the images of Jesus Christ in the streets and they can be viewed during the processions from Monday until Friday, the day on which the old church is dedicated to penitence, abstinence and prayer.
Furthermore on Easter Saturday the people remind themselves of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and from midnight on they start to celebrate his resurrection.
Finally, on Easter Sunday they revive the resurrection. This celebration takes place on the Sunday after the first full moon of spring.
So don´t hesitate too long in planning your vacations for this year, because our courses take place from the 30th of January until the 15th of December 2006.
We hope to welcome you soon at the ACADEMIA ANDALUZA!
