In today’s post, we tell you the perfect plans to make the most of your stay in our resort this holy week.


1. Enjoy the traditions of holy week:


If you want to experience the fervour of these festivities our resort is the ideal place to stay. It is only 15 minutes away from Ayamonte, which has been recognised as the town with the most beautiful Holy Week in Spain in 2024. This award reflects the deep rootedness and dedication of its inhabitants to this special festivity.


This recognition is not surprising, considering the rich history and deep tradition that characterise Holy Week in Ayamonte. With more than 80 years of history, the Agrupación de Cofradías de Ayamonte, was honoured by the Diputación de Huelva with the prestigious Gold Medal of the Province in the category of Tradition. This recognition is a testament to the community’s commitment and devotion to the preservation and enrichment of this unique celebration.


In addition, the Junta de Andalucía has awarded the Agrupación de Cofradías de Ayamonte the Andalusian Flag for Huelva in the category of Art. A recognition that highlights the beauty and artistic quality of the processions and activities related to Holy Week in the region.

With a total of 10 brotherhoods and confraternities participating, Holy Week in Ayamonte offers an exciting and moving experience that captivates brotherhoods and visitors alike. From Friday of Sorrows, 22 March, until Easter Sunday, 31 March, the streets of Ayamonte will be filled with colour, music and religious fervour, creating a unique atmosphere that will delight all those present.


The processions and brotherhoods of Lepe are equally renowned and are only 20 minutes away from our resort. It is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the local traditions and experience the excitement of holy week up close.


On the other hand, if you prefer to explore the city of Huelva, located about 40 minutes away by car, an extensive itinerary awaits you. From Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, the hermandades (brotherhoods) walk through the streets of the city, creating an impressive spectacle that fuses religiosity with history and culture. Some of these processions pass through the historic centre of Huelva, while others culminate at the emblematic church of La Concepción, creating an atmosphere of devotion and celebration that attracts the faithful and visitors from far and wide.

Whether you choose to explore the processions of Lepe or immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of Holy week in Huelva, we are sure you will enjoy an unforgettable experience full of tradition, emotion and spirituality.
