Murcia Holy Week

Murcia Holy Week

Of note are the processions on Holy Monday, with the confraternity of Christ of Forgiveness (Cristo del Perdón); Holy Wednesday, with the popular procession of the coloraos and their Christ of the Blood, and Good Friday morning, when the unmistakeable sculptures of Francisco Salzillo take to the streets. Murcia’s Holy Week is marked by its baroque character, the huertano-style attire of its penitents, and the traditional custom during the processions of handing out sweets to friends and acquaintances.
