The Hallelujah’s Procession in Elche – Easter Sunday (CANCELLED)

04/04/2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Hallelujah’s Procession in Elche – Easter Sunday (CANCELLED)

The procession of the Resurrection, also known as the Sunday of Glory procession, takes place on the morning of Resurrection Sunday, the eighth day after Christ’s entry into Jerusalem. This procession involves the images of the Risen Christ and the Virgin of the Assumption which are borne by penitents from various brotherhoods, this time without their hoods.

In Elche, this procession has a unique feature: as the floats pass through the streets, they do so amid a flurry of “hallelujahs” – small religious images on coloured paper that the townspeople throw from the balconies and roof terraces of their houses.

The origin of this procession dates from the 18th century.
