Why spend Easter in Spain?
by Grove Admin
Many of us soon will be enjoying lots of chocolate eggs and other goodies for Easter, but did you know today is the first day of Holy Week in Spain? In the week leading up to the Easter Weekend, many towns and cities in the country will be celebrating Holy Week, or Semanta Santa, by holding a large religious procession with people carrying huge floats though the streets by hand! With people dressed in ornate robes and artwork that can date back as far as the 17th Century it really is a sight to see when in Spain.
