Cehegín celebrates Easter with processions in which hundreds of penitents follow and carry religious and artistic statues. These processions take place on The Friday of Pain, Palm Sunday, Easter week, Friday morning and night and The Resurrection Sunday.
On Good Friday, at noon there is a special perfomance called “Los pasodobles del Casino”. Different musical bands in the morning procession play a pasodoble in the street outside the Casino in la Calle Mayor in the Old Town. This tradition goes back many years and remembers the joy and happiness felt by the enemies of Jesus after his death.
Easter in Cehegín belong to the Brotherhoods, some of them with 400 hundred years of history so we are talking about a strong tradition between the inhabitants of the city.
