Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Castilla y León is one of the cultural and popular manifestations that attract the highest number of tourists. During the week Castilla y León becomes transformed into a contemplative and devout place, only interrupted by the sound of drums and trumpets.

As varied as the cultural diversity that attends it, the manifestation itself is demonstrative of the devotion of all the people who celebrate the event in their different ways, although always driven by the same sentiments: passion, fervour and silence. Such is the history, custom and sentiment in these religious manifestations, that many of the Holy Week festivals in Castilla y León have been declared festivals of touristic interest Internationally and also nationally and regionally.
