Top Four Easter Hot Spots

Madrid, Spain
The Easter celebrations in Madrid during Semana Santa, or Holy Week, stretching from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, are marked with numerous religious processions. The traditional “pasos” which are basically religious icons, are taken from their normal resting places in churches around the city and paraded through the streets on the shoulders of the “costaleros”, normally young men. On Easter Sunday the main event takes place at mid-day in the Plaza Mayor. This is the “Tamborada del Domingo de Resureccion”, whereby whichever Brotherhood has been chosen for the year, assembles dozens of drums of all shapes and sizes and beats out a constant rhythm which almost shakes the timbers of the nearby houses.

Rome, Italy
During Easter week, Rome the home of the Vatican, become the stage for religious fervour and devotion, combining grief and meditation in memory of Christ’s death and turns into a prime destination for experiencing grand Easter ceremonies. On Good Friday in a moving candlelit procession, the Pope retraces Christ’s Via Crucis, and it ends in a huge open-air Mass on St Peter’s Square on Easter Sunday, after which the Pope delivers his “Urbi et Orbi” address. The Easter procession winds from the Colosseum to Monte Palatino, re-enacting the 14 Stations of the Cross, from Christ’s death sentence to his entombment, with a prayer at each station.

Antigua, Guatemala
Men dressed in purple robes and hoods and carrying floats with large sculptures of Jesus, the sombre beat of the marching band, the air filled with the musky mix of flower petals and incense, religious events and festivities, all turn the pristine Antigua Guatemala city a home to the largest Easter celebration in the world. One of the most impressive aspects of the Easter Festival is the “alfombras” an Arabic word for carpet that adorn the processional route and reflect the Maya tradition, biblical symbolism and scenes from nature.

New York City, USA
On Easter Sunday, “the big apple” transforms into a sea of extravagant Easter bonnets. The Easter parade starts from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and the marchers wander along the New York’s Fifth Avenue from 49th to 57th Streets. From Easter-themed walking tours, Easter egg hunts, Easter church services to Easter brunch and dinner, New York City has lots of Easter-related activities for young and old to enjoy.

Plan your trip with your family or friends and make Easter vacation a lifetime memory!
