Easter week in Toledo


Description

Toledo commemorates the passion and death of Jesus Christ during Easter Week. It is characterised by the sobriety of its processions (solemn corteges accompanying the religious images through the streets of the city) and the spectacular backdrop along the route. The processions wind through the historic city of Toledo, which has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO, and it is particularly worth noting the skill with which the religious images are manoeuvred through the narrow streets of the city. The processions on Maundy Thursday and Easter Friday are particularly attractive. Easter Week is also a good opportunity to visit churches, convents and monasteries that tend to remain closed the rest of the year, but which open this week to offer the multiple religious services in the programme.
