Enjoy a Festival While Visiting Geneva Hospitality’s Palatinum Golf, Spa, and Sport Resort

One of the best times to visit Geneva Hospitality’s Palatinum Golf, Spa, and Sport Resort is when there is a festival taking place in Murcia, Spain. These festivals are a great time for visitors to better understand the area and its traditions.

The Holy Week procession, which is hosted by the city, is the most famous festival throughout all of Spain. This traditional festival portrays the events that lead up to the Crucifixion of Jesus according to the New Testament. During this festival, life sized sculptures, created by Francisco Salzillo, are removed from Salzillo’s museum and paraded around town in an elegant procession among flowers and candles.
These sculptures pause at stations which are meant to reenact the final moments before the Crucifixion.

The Huerta Parade, the most colorful festival in Murcia, comes the Tuesday after Holy Week where locals dress up in traditional huertano clothing to celebrate and on Saturday they fill the streets for the Entierro de la Sardina (Burial of the Sardine) parade.

Also, Murcia celebrates Three Cultures International Festival each May. The festival was originally organized with the intent of overcoming racism between the three cultures that reside there: Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Each year, the festival celebrates these three cultures through music, exhibitions, symposiums, and conferences.
