Every Easter all eyes are on Adeje for its passion play (see HERE), but Guía de Isora has a unique and increasingly famous Easter programme, the star of which is the annual Pascua Florida. This sees the town’s streets filled with floral displays evoking the stations of the cross, as can be seen in the video below. In the old town centre itself, the plazas and pretty cobbled streets are filled with floral displays in a beautiful and moving visual representation of Christ’s journey through Jerusalem to the place of his crucifixion and death.
This year, the ninth for the Pascua Florida, the displays will be on view in the casco – the oldest central part of Guía de Isora town – between Maundy Thursday, 13 April, and Easter Sunday, 16 April. The Ayuntamiento says that this Easter floral tribute is unique in Spain, and in thematic and artistic terms Guía de Isora’s Pascua Florida is becoming almost as well known nationally as Adeje’s Pasión.
