Good Friday in Sabinillas
21 April 2009 @ 19:09
We were at Casares del Sol apartment over Easter and many people had told us to make sure we were in the centre of Sabinillas on the evening of Good Friday to see the procession.We had no idea what time it would start so went into Sabinillas to eat and waited.
Around 11pm people started gathering on the East side of Sabinillas and the procession started soon after with around a hundred people taking part including a brass band and 2 hand carried floats. And when the procession started moving, many of the local people joined in and walked down the street.
It was quite a sight and quite moving to see the energy of the proceedings - including all ages.
So if there is a fiesta on when you visit the Costa del Sol - make a point of seeing how the Spanish celebrate - see festival dates in Manilva area.
