Semana Santa en Málaga

Alocars car hireDesde el domingo de Ramos hasta el Domingo de Resurrección, las cofradías malagueñas procesionan sus tronos que representan la Pasión de Cristo desde su entrada en Jerusalén hasta su Resurrección. El recorrido oficial goza de una variedad, sobriedad, respeto y perfecto desfile de todas y cada una de las cofradías, que merece la pena admirar.

Destacar también el clamor popular y fervor por parte de los habitantes de los barrios de Málaga, quienes se entregan a sus Cristos y Vírgenes de una manera especial en el momento de las salidas y encierros procesionales.

La mayoría de las Cofradías y Hermandades de Pasión cuentan con su propia Casa-Hermandad, verdaderos museos, donde se puede visitar y observar de cerca y con detalle el lujo y belleza de sus tronos, mantos de Vírgenes, equipos y enseres de liturgia y procesión.

Cuando aún no ha terminado de despuntar el alba del Lunes Santo, es cuando miles de malagueños se agrupan dentro y alrededor de la parroquia de San Pablo para participar en el traslado de las imágenes de la Cofradía de Jesús Cautivo María Santísima de la Trinidad desde su capilla a sus tronos procesionales. No es éste un traslado de imágenes cualquiera sino “el traslado” por antonomasia. Espectacular es ver el número de promesas que acompañan a Jesús Cautivo en la procesión del Lunes Santo como muestra de fe del barrio trinitario, que ha llegado a alcanzar las treinta mil personas.

Semana Santa de Málaga

En la noche del Lunes Santo hay otra imagen de Cristo que arrastra tras de sí el espíritu de una raza. La Hermandad de Jesús de la Columna y María Santísima de la O, la cofradía de “Los Gitanos”, sale con su cortejo alegre y algo heterodoxo desde la calle Frailes.

La liberación de un preso sin delito de sangre por Nuestro Padre Jesús el Rico cada Miércoles Santo, privilegio concedido por Carlos III, ya que, cuando la epidemia de cólera en Málaga, sin poder salir a la calle, los presos se escaparon de la cárcel y, tras llevar al Cristo por las calles, regresaron todos, sin aprovechar la ocasión para fugarse.

A destacar son los acompañamientos militares en las procesiones de aquellas Cofradías con las que, por diferentes motivos, se encuentran vinculadas; casos como Los Regulares con el Cautivo, La Legión con el Cristo de la Buena Muerte o Ánimas de Ciegos con los Paracaidistas, La Marina con la Soledad o la Caballería con la Zamarrilla.

No podemos olvidar citar a la Cofradía de la Expiración, acompañada por la Guardia Civil, por su sobriedad. A la Virgen de la Esperanza por el clamor popular que despierta en los malagueños y al Santo Sepulcro por su seriedad y ejemplar desfile.

Y en la provincia…

En la provincia de Málaga, cobran especial relevancia la Semana Santa de los municipios de  Alhaurín de la Torre, Antequera, Archidona, Arriate, Campillos, Riogordo, Ronda y Velez-Málaga.
Todas ellas catalogadas como Fiestas de Interés Turístico, lo que da una idea de su mérito y belleza.

Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas

Natural Park Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas

This is the largest natural park of Spain and locates in the north-east of the province of Jaén where the Segura and the Guadalquivir rivers rise. It offers an amazing landscape diversity that goes from the 650 meters in its lowest quote where the Tranco Reservoir lies to the summit of Las Empanadas with 2.107 meters high. There are also some narrow valleys like that of the Borosa, Hornos or Aguasmulas rives and wide valleys like the Guadalquivir’s.

The natural space consists of four mountain chains: Cazorla, in the west border with the El Adelantado Parador Nacional hotel; and the mountain chains of Las Villas, el Pozo and Segura. Its rough orography enables the existence of many rivers and streams. The Segura river forms a natural reservoir inside the Park, that of Anchuricas and continues its way through the mountain chain.

Certainly, the tourist activity is one of the economic resources of the park par excellence, besides wood and sheep.

Thanks to the revival of energetics activities and its ecological values it deserved the classification of Biosphere Reserve in 1983, through it was National hunting reserve since 1960. Later on, it became Natural Park by Decree on 1989 and Special Area for the Protection of the Birds (ZEPA in Spanish).

The activities available in the park are very varied: adventure sports, trekking, speleology, paraglide and hang-glider.

The park hoards a rich historic-artistic heritage. From the almost 400 years of Arab domination and from the Reconquers period there are still many fortifications like the historic-artistic complex of Segura de la Sierra. The San Miguel Castle of Bujaraiza, the Arab and Christian castles of Cazorla and the watch tower of Tiscar.
