Maritime Holy Week

Every Easter, exciting biblical processions take place with more than 500 years of tradition at the Semana Santa Marinera - or Maritime Holy Week.

In 2015 the events take place from 29 March to 5 April in Cabanyal-Canyameral in Valencia's maritime district, next to the city's urban beaches. It offers a fascinating perspective on Valencia, not seen by the majority of visitors to the city.

Apart from seeing the festivities we recommend you get to know the area too. You can relax on the seafront promenade or beach, take a walk through the narrow streets, see the modernist houses and typical shops, or simply enjoy some local dishes for lunch by the sea.

You can also take the opportunity to visit the marina and take a boat trip, with tours available daily.
