The capital of Malaga has become one of the favorite cities for both national and international tourists, due to its incredible cultural, gastronomic, sports and leisure offer.
Lovers of traditions are in luck this Holy Week as the religious brotherhoods will once again bring their “thrones” (large ornate floats) through the streets after two years of absence. From April 1 to Passion Saturday, 31 brotherhoods will carry their images with their famous « Malagueño thrones » through the streets of Malaga.
