This is the place where the oldest processions in Spain are held, dating back to the 15th century.

Easter week in the town of Medina del Campo (Valladolid province) is characterised by its history and tradition, as well as by its rich heritage. Dating back to the 15th century and therefore the oldest in Spain, this celebration is famous for its silent processions and the devotion of the participants. A total of eight cofradías or brotherhoods take part in the processions that parade the streets of the town, with works of Castilian religious art on display.

Easter week is one of the most heartfelt and deep-rooted fiestas celebrated in Spain. This commemoration has centuries of history and tradition, remembering the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The streets of the majority of Spain's cities, towns and villages become the stage for religious fervour and devotion, combining grief and meditation in memory of Christ's death. Music, art and colour come together in magical processions - solemn parades in which crowds of people accompany religious images on their route through the streets.
