The Procession of the Holy Burial - 21st March
La Procession del Santo Entierro
Semana Santa Marinera, Valencia
is the most spectacular of the three "collective acts" of Semana
Santa Marinera in Valencia - meaning a procession involving all Brotherhoods,
not just one or two. It is the absolute highlight of the Semana Santa,
so don't miss it.
What it the message
This is a procession of mourning for the death of Christ. It does resemble
a grotesque funeral procession. The imagenes will recount the story of
What you will see
The full tragedy of Christ's martyrdom is spilled onto the streets of
Valencia. Tragic slow steps, mounrnful music, no smiles, torches and candles,
all of the hats are on, faces are covered. Some people will walk barefoot.
All 28 of the Brotherhoods
will take to the streets in the richest procession of Semana Santa Marinera
in Valencia. The uniformed members of Brotherhood will surround various
biblical characters and their imagen, followed by a music band. This is
your chance to see all of the Brotherhoods in their full glory, and all
of the imagenes, many of which
are true works of art.
Officially, the procession takes 5 hours from first group leaving to last
group arriving. If you are on one spot and the procession goes past you,
it will take 3.5 hours.
