Watch the processions of Malaga’s Holy Week 2016 at Alcazaba Premium Hostel
Valora el post

As so many other fellow locals, at Alcazaba Premium Hostel we are already counting the days left for the Holy Week to start. This event, declared of International Tourist Interest in 1980, is undoubtedly the most famous, spectacular and unique of traditions in our city, as Holy Week is lived in Andalusia not with with meditation and silence as in Northern Spain, but it is full of happiness, noise, cheer, spontaneous saetas (flamenco verses sung at the processions) and applause as the images pass by.

Located at the very foot of Malaga’s Alcazaba, in the very heart of downtown Malaga, our hostel enjoys a privileged location that allows our guests to enjoy the emblematic processions that have been present in the city for over 500 years.

These days, thousands of people are in the hunt of a cheap hostel in Malaga, and at Alcazaba Premium Hostel we have an extraordinary added value that sets us ahead of the competition as one of the best hostels in Malaga. From our rooftop terrace y and restaurant Batik, our guests will be able to enjoy an extraordinary aerial view of all the processions that march down and around Alcazabilla street. These are quite a few and leave a special aroma of incense and flowers at our very doorstep.

If you don’t want to miss out on any of the processions that will be visiting us during the Passion Week, check out some of the most important events that can be seen from our hostel and rooftop terrace:
