Holy Week

The town puts in a tremendous effort to experience with great intensity one of its most traditional festivals. In Oliva, Holy Week is celebrated with great emotion, and the people participate enthusiastically in the events and liturgical traditions. The streets become spaces in which there is a mix of music from drums and cornets, the colours of the flowers and the artwork of the religious sculptures, thus creating an emotionally moving image. The date of the festival varies; it can be between March and April, depending on the year, as it depends on the lunar calendar.
