Declared of International Tourist Interest
The Holy Week in Cartagena is one of the greatest treasures of the city. Its processions, at night or in the early hours of the morning, are lived with so much excitement that even the tourists will not be able to avoid feeling involved in the devotion and dedication.
What makes the processions of Cartagena different is their perfect order and absolute silence, which has been inherited from the military past of the city. You will be impressed by the simultaneous movements of the hoods in the narrow streets of the city; by the richness of polychromes in the stunning thrones, and by the illumination provided by some special lamps called "cartelas".
