Easter in Álava

Many regions of Álava perform events and processions to recall the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ from Maundy Thursday to Resurrection Day.

Among other celebrations, it is required to attend processions in Vitoria and Laguardia. Besides, on Resurrection Sunday in areas such as Salinas de Añana, Baños de Ebro and Lagrán, the “Burning of Judas” should be attended.

In Moreda de Álava as well, the apostle who betrayed Jesus is burnt at the stake with Judesa, his couple.

About 300 Nazarenes or penitents accompany the Silent Procession and the Holy Burial on Maundy Thursday and Holy Friday in Vitoria-Gasteiz respectively, which has been celebrated over the past four centuries.

The Resurrection Day is held in the New Cathedral, where the faithful attend the blessing of palm leaves.
