Visitors to the centre of Orihuela can’t help but notice all the work that has been going on for days. There have been improvements of all kinds; changing of lights, building ramps for the disabled, removing old fences, cleaning up graffiti, repairing roads and cobbles etc etc. The City Council is making an effort to prepare for Easter knowing that the city will receive thousands of tourists and visitors.
Some would say that this sort of work should go on all year and not just for Easter but then Semana Santa is such an important event for the city. Possibly the only time when the city attracts so many people. Hopefully, the results of the labours will last long after the last paso has been packed safely away until next year.
