HOLIDAYS&EVENTS • Holy Week in ValenciaValenciaApril 5 - April 12, 2011 • Holy Week in Valencia continues to be one of the regions’ most beautiful and lively traditions, and is highly enjoyable by all who attend. Modern day townspeople dress up as characters from the Bible, and the joyous crowd dances through the street. The three main events of the festival include the Gathering of Palms, the Procession of the Holy Burial, and the Procession of the Resurrection. This religious celebration is certainly a great reason to visit Spain this upcoming spring!
