April 15th - Maundy Thursday  - Jueves Santo

(Thursday celebrated in many regions
April 16th- Good Friday - Viernes Santo

Holy Week (Semana Santa) has its most elaborate and dramtic celebrations in Andalucia. You'll find memorable processions of floats and penitents at Sevilla, Malaga, Granada and Cordoba and to a lesser extent in smaller towns such as Jerez, Arcos, Baeza and Ubeda. All culminate with dramatic candlelight processions at dawn on Good Friday, with Easter Day itself more of a family occasion.
Religious Virgins are hugely popular in Andalucia; they are normally handcrafted from wood and porcelain and spend 99.9 per cent of the year in glass-covered alcoves at the local church. Most are dusted down and placed on flower-decked thrones at Easter-time when they are lovingly and solemnly borne through the streets.
Granada's Easter week celebrations have been given a national tourism award and last from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.

Last week of April (approximately 2 weeks after Easter) Week-long feria de Abril at Sevilla: the largest fair in Spain. A Small April fair - featuring bull runing - is held in Vejer.

THE VIRGIN OF JAEN. One of Andalusia’s most colourful pilgrimages is held in Andujar (Jaén) on the last weekend in April to honour the Virgen de la Cabeza, commemorating the appearance of the virgin to a local shepherd in the 13th century. Festivities last several days leading up to the pilgrimage on the last weekend in April.
