Holy Week in Córdoba
The Holy Week of Cordoba, which begins on the 14th and ends on April 21st, is a commemorative feast of the Passion of Christ in which the people publicly manifest their faith. The city is filled with processional parades that shed the smell of incense and the dim light of the candles carried by the Nazarenes. In Cordoba there are 37 Confraternities of Penance at present that organize the processions, some with centuries of history, and that agglutinate citizens of all the ages and social condition. The Holy Week of Cordoba, unlike others, is silent and collected. The processions framed in the Historic Center of Cordoba, World Heritage, highlight especially making it one of the most important in Andalusia.
