Basically these are the dates for Easter this year

Viernes de Dolores (literally Friday of pain) – March 26th

Sábado de Pasión (passion Saturday) – March 27th

Domingo de Ramos (Palm Sunday) – March 28th In Bigastro there will be mass in the park at about 12:30pm followed by a parade along Calle Purisima back to the church. A good occasion for people watching because everyone will be out in their Sunday best.

Semana Santa (Holy Week) there are parades on each day or night from Monday through to Friday in Torrevieja and Orihuela. The main parade (when all the cofradias take part) will be on Friday 2nd April at about 9pm.

For further information about Torrevieja see my post .

Sabado de Gloria 3rd

Domingo de la Resurrección 4th – special interest on this day is the Encuentro in Bigastro which will leave the church at about 7:30am.
