If you are in the area and admire quality craftsmanship then you have to visit. Although fundamentally it is about religion, this is not just for the religious. Most events have costumes that look good at a distance but are "cheap" up close. These costumes...More

We were lucky enough to have tickets in the stands to see these lovely capes in action. It was wonderful to see them before in a calm setting to photograph them and then see them during the Semana Santa processions being worn. Such amazing work...More

Incredible to see, the workmanship, it is just stunning. You learn the history of the parades during Holy Week too. If you go to Lorca and to visit, you are missing a great opportunity to see how history is made and still admired today.
