Holy Week in Salobreña

If anything characterises Easter in Salobreña the most, it is the series of processions. Here you will see the venerated images against the sunset against the background of the valley and the sea from the top of the town.

Cristo atado a la Columna

Cofradía del Santísimo Cristo de la Humildad
Foundation: 1932
Church: Iglesia Parroquial del Rosario
Floats: Two
Artist: Antonio Barbero
Place of interest: As the procession leaves the church and moves along Calle Bóveda y Albaicín.

Holy Week in Salobreña starts on Holy Tuesday with the departure of the image Christo de la Humildad, which is led up and down the steep slopes of the town. The devotees gather along the route and admire the spectacle.

Cristo de la Humillación

Cofradía del Santísimo Cristo de la Humillación y María Santísima del Amor
Church: Iglesia de San Juan Bautista
Floats: One
Place of interest: As the procession meets the Cofradía del Nazareno at the top of Calle de Rosario and Calle García Lorca.

This is the youngest of the brotherhoods in Salobreña. One of the key moments during the procession is when it crosses the Calle de Rosario and saetas (special type of songs) are chanted.

 

El Nazareno

Cofradía de Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno y María Santísima de la Esperanza
Church: Parroquia del Rosario
Floats: One
Place of interest: When the Cofradía del Cristo de la Humillación come to where Calle de Rosario, Ladera de la Cruz and Calle Albaicín all meet.

El Silencio

Cofradía del Santísimo Cristo del Perdón
Church: Iglesia Parroquial del Rosario
Floats: One
Place of interest: When the procession passes through the very narrow Calle Real, the Calle Rosario and the Calle Ladera de la Cruz.

El Silencio is the procession in which the most people take part, processing behind the holy image. Of particular impact is when the procession passes through the Calle Real, when the beams of the float scuff the whitewashed walls of this narrow street.

 

Penas y San Juan

Cofradía de María Santísima de las Penas, Santísimo Cristo de la Buena Muerte y San Juan Evangelista
Church: Iglesia Parroquial del Rosario
Floats: One
Artist: José Navas Parejo (1949)
Place of interest: As the procession leaves the church, carried by a group of women though the Calle Real, Rosario Muralla and the Plaza del Pescado.

On the same day, the Cofradía del María Santísima de las Penas y San Juan Evangelista goes also out. In this case the float is carried by a group of women. The float, made in a traditional Seville style, is the only one of this type to take part in the procession during Holy Week in Salobreña.

Santo Sepulcro

Cofradía del Santo Sepulcro
Foundation: Around 1940
Church: Iglesia Parroquial del Rosario
Floats: One
Artist: 18th century by an unknown artist
Place of interest: As the procession passes through the Calle Bóveda and the Calle Estación.

Good Friday begins with the Santo Entierro (Holy Funeral), carried out by two brotherhoods: the Santo Sepulcro and María Santísima de los Dolores. It is the official procession of the town, and its route passes through the steep slopes in the old town; a particularly tense moment of the procession is as it passes the narrow Calle Real. The image was acquired in 1819 to enrich Holy Week in Salobreña. At that time the statue cost 7749 reals (old Spanish currency), including its transport by eight men.

 

Dolores

Cofradía de María Santísima de los Dolores
Church: Iglesia Parroquial del Rosario
Floats: One
Artist: Domingo Sánchez Mesa
Place of interest: This is part of the Santo Entierro (holy burial). The part when the procession passes by the Calle Real is worth watching.

A little later the figure of María en su Soledad is taken out. It is the figure of María Santísima de los Dolores stripped of all her finery. This Virgin does not belong to a brotherhood, and instead is taken out accompanied by a thousand women in silence wearing clothes of mourning. The procession goes out in silence around the old town, lit only light of the candles of the penitents.

 

Soledad

Nuestra Señora de la Soledad
Foundation: 17th century
Church: Iglesia Parroquial del Rosario
Floats: One
Place of interest: As the procession leaves the church, enters the Calle Bóveda and passes through the Paseo de la Iglesia, the Calle Real and the Albaicín district.
