Holiday In Iznajar,Cordoba Province,Andalucia - Easter 2011 - Semana Santa

Hi everyone,we are coming close to Easter in Iznajar,Andalucia and this month Casa Pino Solo is trading as apartments and if you are looking for a last minute holiday we do still have a small amount of availability and special offers running for these dates too.
Holy Week, Semana Santa, in Iznajar,Andalucia is an event that everyone should see and be apart of.
Processions go through the village with Jesus and Mary statues that take over 40 men to carry each one and some of the people who are in the processions wear pointed hats and walk slowly through the streets, from the church,down to the bottom of the village and back up to the church again after a little rest.
Everyone also carrys burning candles which again is tradition and happens every year.
It is an amazing experience, and a great time to come to Iznajar if you want to be involved  in traditions, social gatherings and rituals.As we are a small village it is more of an intimate experience than going to the larger processions in the cities of Malaga,Cordoba,Granada or Seville.
The Spanish are really welcoming to anyone joining this occasion and make you feel part of the community.
Holy week this year is the 17th to the 24th April and if you can visit us during this time you will be part of an amazing experience and one you will never forget.
We hope to see you at Casa Pino Solo and do contact us for our availability.Lisa and Nigel Derry
