MALAGA Easter 2018

Page 1 Page 2

In Malaga, & other places in Spain, over the Holy Week period there are a number of long processions.
Organised by brotherhoods (hermandades or cofradías in Spanish),
the processions are parades consisting of at least two large floats, one carrying a Christ figure and the other
a figure of the virgin with members of the brotherhood carrying the floats or walking in front of them.
