Last week here on the blog of Hotel Yaramar we shared with you all details about Holy Week in Fuengirola.

Diputación de Málaga

This time we would like to recommend you another interesting Holy Week event, this time in Benalmadena Pueblo.

The Benalmadena Holy Week is famous in the Costa del Sol for its amazing performance of the passion of Christ.

This performance is known as “El Paso” and has been declared to be of tourist interest by the Malaga Provincial Government.

This tradition started in the early 20th Century, and it is a dramatic recreation of Jesus’ last days of life performed by over a hundred villagers.  

The text they use has a popular origin and the author is unknown. It also mixes prose and verse and was written in the late 19th Century.

El Paso of Benalmadena 2023, will take place on Easter Thursday (6th of April) and Good Friday (7th of April) from 11:00 A.M in Parque Rustico de Retamar. 

If you are currently on holiday at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend not to miss this unique experience and to attend this amazing event.

Enjoy Holy Week in the Costa del Sol!
