Easter week

Uniqueness and tradition

The brotherhoods will be coliblancas or colinegros according to the crowd of Jews that accompany them

The Baenense Holy Week celebrations have their roots in the first third of the 16th century and their protagonists are the thousands of brotherhoods who are part of the more than 50 brotherhoods (many of them subdivided into gangs) integrated into the brotherhoods that process the Palm Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Good Friday, as well as Easter Sunday.

These brotherhoods are integrated into seven penitential brotherhoods that worship sacred images with which the most crucial moments of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ are remembered. In this way, tradition, the most unique folklore and Faith are inextricably linked, a Faith that is lived in a very special way in Baena because what in many places is synonymous with recollection and silence, here becomes an explosion of sound and color, something unique that leads those who star in it to experience a catharsis in which the deepest religious feelings emerge in this peculiar way in search of the transcendent.
