Example Itinerary

Day 1-5

SEVILLE, Spain

  • Start the Holy Week Celebrations on Palm Sunday watching La Amargura Brotherhood exit the Iglesia San Juan de la Palma
  • Spot a blackleg Iberian Pig in the forest outside Seville before learning about this speciality ham in the Cinco Jotas Bodega

Begin your Holy Week on Palm Sunday, touring the city’s incredible landmarks and sampling Seville’s most authentic dishes before watching the Brotherhoods’ ‘paso’ processions in the evening.

Arrive in Seville the day before Palm Sunday and check in to your boutique hotel nestled in a quiet alleyway in the Barrio Alfalfa. The Corral Del Rey is a beautifully restored 17th century Casa Palacio with Moorish architectural designs and a rooftop terrace with a plunge pool that overlooks the Cathedral and Giralda Tower. Begin Palm Sunday with a morning walking tour to explore Seville’s resplendent Mudejar Palaces, baroque churches and winding medieval lanes, uniquely decorated in palms for the celebrations.  Tour the Royal Alcazar – a royal palace built atop an ancient Muslim Fortress –  before exploring the Santa Cruz District and the Old Jewish Quarter. In the evening, begin Holy Week Processions watching La Amargura Brotherhood exit the Iglesia San Juan del la Palma, before watching La Cena lit up by candlelight at the Plaza de los Tercero.

Bring your appetite on Monday as you tuck into the authentic Andalusian dishes on your private tapas tasting tour, such as a tender beef cheek paired with the perfect Spanish wine. In the afternoon, join the elated audience as they watch the spectacular exit of El Museo in the evening before heading to the Plaza de la Gavidia to watch the Vera-Cruz Brotherhood and their magnificent paso. The following day, travel to the nearby forests with a private guide to spot the blackleg Iberian Pig before heading to the famous Cinco Jotas Bodega to learn how to carve the ham before sampling some for yourself with a glass of sherry. In the evening, watch the Nazarenes of the Dulce Nombre as they exit San Benito with their paso, accompanied by the sounds of the saetas, or flamenco prayers.

Day 5-8

MARBELLA, Spain

  • Travel through the Andalusian countryside discovering the pueblos blancos perched on hilltops surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery
  • Sit back and relax on the Spanish coast at the Marbella Beach Club

Recuperate after your exciting couple of days enjoying Seville’s Holy Week on Marbella’s Golden Mile.

Say goodbye to Seville and head south through the Andalusian countryside, stopping at the spectacular village of Ronda to admire the views from this charming hilltop town. Continue south to arrive at the Marbella Beach Club. This former aristocratic family residence is positioned on Marbella’s Golden Mile. It has a classic Andalusian look and feel, with its rustic romantic interior and gardens that take you through rocky seaside trails to the sandy beaches of the Spanish coast. Here you can simply relax at the beach club, recovering from your busy stay in Seville watching the Holy Week Celebrations. Alternatively, guests can organise tennis lessons, horseback riding, golf, water sport activities as well as expert yoga classes and wellness programmes at the hotel’s Thalasso Spa. For those wishing to continue exploring Spain’s rich history and culture, a trip to Alhambra can be arranged to see this spectacular fortress and palace complex.
