DECLARED OF REGIONAL TOURIST INTEREST

Holy Week in Totana is a mix of tradition and modernity and brings together a multitude of men and women on its days of celebrations. In fact, the most settled tradition in Totana is "dressing like a nazarene", a kind of magical call with which everybody agrees and feels ready to carry it out.

All is related with black, a color in which everybody is dressed, a sign of identity which accompanies all inhabitants of Totana from the 17th century. This is the clothing of councilors used to participate in mourning acts. Ancient nazarenes resorted to their Brotherhood, covered their face, lighted the altar candle and untied the tail that hug waist and dragged it along the whole route.

During the Holy Week, thousands of nazarenes go along the streets, taking part in processional acts and, step out of line so as to get some food and drinks in bars or in families "or friends" houses who prepare typical food of these dates such as "pipirrana" (salad with basic ingredients), "paparajotes" (fried lemon tree leaves covered with flour and eggs and powdered sugar and ground cinnamon), and "empanadillas" (small pasties filled with tomato, tuna and boiled eggs).

This is a Holy Week which combines devotion and austerity with the burst of the nazarene vitality.
