Osuna's Holy Week

201
2

Osuna’s Holy Week, the most important religious event in the city, was designated an Andalusian Festival of Tourist Interest in 1999 owing to its historical and artistic value.

Beyond the beautiful processions of religious images through Osuna’s streets in spring, it is possible to enjoy every year a solemn pageant that reflects the local people’s devotion.

The floats take in procession invaluable sculptures by well-known artists, such as Juan de Mesa, José de Mora, Juan de Astorga and Vicente de Tena, among others.

During the processions through Osuna’s streets of incomparable beauty, the splendour of the images is heightened by the palaces, stately manors and beautiful convents and churches.

This combination of art, colour and the aroma of incense and orange blossoms make Osuna's Holy Week a unique event.
