The Easter period in Madrid sees a number of processions and events taking place. Right across the city the numerous churches will open their doors and religious statues that have spent the whole year locked up will be carried out to celebrate Easter. If you’ve never seen Spanish processions before, and if you’re in Madrid, you’re in for a treat. Penitent woshsippers dressed in robes (and dressed like the Klu Klux Klan), bands playing and ordinary people taking in the spectacle will fill the street. The Muncipal Council of Madrid has prepared a full itinerary, which can be found on the Esmadrid website (in Spanish only).
