Holy Week, the last week of Lent, which is the week immediately before Easter, sees its most glamorous celebrations in the region of Andalusia, particularly in Málaga, while those of Castile see the more sombre and solemn events, typified by Semana Santa at Zamora.

Semana Santa is Spain's version of Easter - it's bigger, better, more pious and more Spanish than any eggs and bunny equivalent you've experienced elsewhere in the world.

Semana Santa goes on for more than week, rather than the usual four days that is common in the US and UK.

Domingo de la Resurreccion (Resurrection Sunday) is on the same day as our Easter Sunday.

It is best to book your Semana Santa hotels as early as your favorite hotel booking site allows, which is usually around 12 months ahead: Book Semana Santa 2013 Hotels
