Holy Week of Easter started yesterday with Palm Sunday, and Good Friday this week is a public holiday. Throughout Semana Santa, however, many parts of Tenerife will be commemorating Jesus Christ’s last week on Earth with processions and display of sacred statues.
I think everyone would agree that the main event of Easter here is Adeje’s Passion Play, an internationally renowned and televised performance of Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem and the events leading up to his crucifixion. This takes place in Adeje town on Friday – see HERE. Also, increasingly famous is the Pascua Florida – floral exhibitions of the Stations of the Cross – in Guía de Isora from Thursday – see HERE.
N.B. Thanks to an error in the regional Government’s administrative computation of 2018’s fiestas, Easter Thursday will not be an official public holiday but a “recuperable” one. This means that employees will be able to have the day off, but will have to make the hours up.
