THE processions in Torrevieja during Semana Santa attract thousands of residents and visitors to witness these events chronicling the Passion of Christ. 2020 will be the 15 th year that the Paso of Jesus in the Garden of Olives has been taken through the streets of Torrevieja on the Monday and Friday during Semana Santa by the International Cofradia.

The International Cofradia is a group made up mostly of British ex-pats and for many years the group have carried the Paso on their shoulders, a task which needed around 100 costaleros. This is a fantastic opportunity to participate in one of the most important events in the local Spanish cultural and religious calendar. The group will meet on Thursday, March 26, and again on April 2 when the Paso will be taken down to the Inmaculada Church in the centre of Torrevieja ready for the Easter processions during the following week. The meetings will be held at the Semana Santa Museum which is on the outskirts of Torrevieja off Avenida Baleares to the side of and behind Restaurante Fu, starting at 7:30 pm in the evening.
