Easter Ibiza: Santa Eulalia Processions

The religious celebration of Easter in Ibiza is a fascinating and moving spectacle and nowhere more so than in Santa Eulalia.

Several solemn processions take place there over the Easter period when traditionally garbed Penitents carry flower bedecked 'floats' carrying religious statues parade through the town.

The first procession is on 28th March, Palm Sunday, leaving the Chapel of Lourdes at 10.00 followed by a mass in the church at 11.00.

The two main processions take place on Easter Thursday, 1st April at 21.00 and Good Friday, 2nd April at 20.00 proceeding through the main streets of Santa Eulalia.

There's also a concert on Good Friday at 12.30 in front of the town hall and you can see the programme on the poster we've reproduced here.
