Holy Week in Ronda stands out thanks to the impressive monumental setting in which it takes place. The town that is home to the Tajo Gorge in itself is a unique backdrop to represent the Passion and death of Jesus Christ.
In total there are 15 processions by 14 different brotherhoods. Some floats are accompanied by the music of Marching Bands, Music Groups or Choirs. It's an unparalleled religious event and one of the most deeply rooted spiritual, cultural, artistic and popular traditions.
Brotherhoods and fraternities
The origin of Holy Week in Ronda dates back to the town's conquest by the Catholic Monarchs, although its inhabitants have always had particular empathy towards the popular religious sentiment, surrounded by the smell of incense and rosemary.
It's considered an Andalusian Festival of National Interest and its history is combined with the charm of its street and the cultural and artistic value of its statues.
