Easter is one of the biggest and most important events of the year in Spain. To celebrate Easter, Spaniards parade through streets in costumes or in hooded robes, while carrying intricate religious floats that depict different scenes from the Bible. Some of the biggest parades and processions can be found in the Andalusian cities of Sevilla and Málaga. Live music accompanies the parade for the religious celebration!
In Spain, people like to spend with family. They usually get a big lunch or dinner on Easter Sunday and a meal of seafood and a sopa de ajo (garlic soup) with an egg bake into the centre.
Although there are many chocolates and bunnies around Spain, these are not the typical treats eaten at Easter. Torrija (similar to French toast), pestiños and cakes are popular choices in Spain during the week.
