La Semana Santa – Easter Week 2020
As you might know, during the semana santa (which is the week before Easter Sunday – this year on April 12th) the streets of all Andalucian cities such as Marbella or Malaga are crowded by people watching the religious processions. During these processions, locals belonging to different fraternities carry around the thrones (weighing hundreds of kilos) with the Holy Virgin and Jesus. The Passion of Christ is lived in a very intense way in Spain and during these days local people visit the churches and many shops are closed.
Beachseason and fancy pool parties
Depending on the weather but typically at the beginning of May, Marbella’s famous beachclubs organize their big opening parties. In the best locations you will find international Dj sets and events such as champagne parties but also during daytime these places are ideal for a family lunch, a private party or a single mingle.
What comes after these beautiful and idyllic months of spring is the typically hot and Andalucian summer, lasting up to 5 months and hosting many worldclass events such as the starlight festival with the best selection of international music stars.
