This little town in the north-west of the Region celebrates the Passion amid the incessant pounding of drums, which take to the streets on Thursday, Friday and Sunday. From 05/04/2012 to 08/04/2012
During the Holy Week there is a traditional tamborada, i.e. a collective drumming, which can last the day long. In southern Spain, tamboradas are characteristic of Moratalla as well as of Mula (in Murcia), Hellín and Tobarra (in Albacete). A singularity of Moratalla consists of every tamborista (drummer) being dressed in distinct, hand-made robes. Drums are also traditionally hand-made.
