Easter Week 2015

Both this week (Easter) and next (Spring Festival) are great tourist affluence weeks. Also, they are weeks when Murcian people take to the streets.
The week of Easter, for believers and nonbelievers, is a way to see some works of religious art, taking to the streets. Murcia processions are considered of International Tourist Interest.
I invite you to come to Murcia these days. I also invite you to visit the "Easter Week label", and see photos of past years so that you have an overview of Murcian processions.
A very recommended article about: Aesthetic configuration of the Murcian processions. A peculiarity I want to highlight (besides the dress) is the distribution to the audience of candies and other foods from Murcian Nazarenes. There is evidence in the eighteenth century that this was taking place.
