At the passage of the Jesus of the Great Power, the Esperanza Macarena or the Christ of the Gypsies, the fervor of the public is revived and saetas are sung from the nearby balconies. Nothing better than the Hotel Alcoba del Rey, next to the Basilica of Santa Maria de la Esperanza Macarena, to know this year the famous Madrugá de Sevilla, which will take place on the night of 18 to 19 April.

LA DIABLESA OF ORIHUELA

LA DIABLESA OF ORIHUELA

In the procession of "Santo Entierro de Cristo" of Orihuela, which is celebrated on Holy Saturday, there is a figure that catches the attention of the observer. This is "The Devil", a winged demon, with female breasts, horns on the head and whose tongue peeks between the teeth. Its characteristics have turned the passage of El Triunfo de la Cruz into the most singular of this procession that, for transporting this figure, is forbidden to enter the temples, and therefore, when the rest accesses the Cathedral, it waits outside. until the parade is resumed. Discover this original Alicante procession on April 20, based on the Hotel Spa La Romana, 45 minutes from Orihuela.
