Watch the processions of Malaga’s Holy Week at our youth hostel in downtown Malaga!
Malaga’s Holy Week is one of the favourite holidays in the city and, of course, in our boutique hostel in downtown Malaga we join this feeling and enjoy the whole week surrounded by a special aroma of incense and flowers. We have the privilege of being located in downtown Malaga, next to the Alcazaba and many other monuments and museums. But there is even more… Many of the processions of Malaga’s Holy Week march down and around Alcazabilla street -at our very doorstep-, leaving unforgettable scenes: drums, incense, conical headwears, spontaneous saetas (flamenco verses sung at the processions), cheer…
This event is definitely one of the most famous and spectacular festivities in the city and was declared of International Tourist Interest in 1980. So, you already know what to do in Malaga during the Passion Week! You will also find many fellow locals, who go out to see, follow, applaud, cheer and sing to their favourite processions. This is a spectacle well worth seeing, which moves even non-believers.
Alcazaba Premium Hostel, in downtown Malaga, is certainly the best option to spend your Easter holidays. Choose what to do in Malaga and taste the innovative food of our Batik restaurant, enjoy the outstanding views from our rooftop terrace… and live the tradition in its purest form through our Holy Week.
Since Alcazaba Premium Hostel is not just one youth hostel more in Spain, we have gathered for you the preliminary parades and processions that march at our very doorstep this year. Do not miss anything out! Come and enjoy them from our rooftop terrace or our restaurant!
