An eminently passionate and processions-lover village, whose first Nazarene demonstration date from the end of the 15th century. Since its dawn, the Holy Week of Cieza has evolved to offer the current visitor lots of values and hints which make it unique in comparison with the rest of the southeast of Spain.
Cieza knows how to show in its Holy Week that there can be a contemporary and traditional mix, and that fidelity to religious rites and celebrations can also take part in the festive part.
Cieza also knows how to mix the aspects of sacred and profane worlds, which may yearn for the same. In these dates, in a square, in a street, we can attend an Auto Sacramental, but also an intense sweets rain, the roar of jubilation of drums and the reflexive concentration of the nights in which it is admired the pain of a dying Christ transfixed by a lance, almost gravitating over a city in the dark. Attending so many withdrawals is impressive. But at the same time concerts are held other days, moves of statues, children processions with the tots of the different brotherhoods, fireworks, or Palm leaves are blessed or proclamations about the Nazarene.
