The Holy Week processions in Abarán are some of the most colourful and beautiful ones in the Region of Murcia. Not surprisingly, it is declared as event of Regional Tourist Interest since 1985.
The religious and the civil shake hands, being precisely the Plaza del Ayuntamiento the place where one of the most popular moments of the Holy Week of Abarán takes place: the procession of the Encuentro or de las Reverencias (Encounter of Bows), on Easter Sunday. Bands of cornets and drums, and different thrones meet until they welcome the throne of the Virgin with two inclinations, which wait with excitement for the throne of the Resucitado (Resurrected). In that moment, music starts sounding and doves are released.
