What to do during the Holy Week in Malaga 2019

New official route for the Holy Week 2019 in Malaga

There are not many people in Malaga who are still unaware that this year the Holy Week in Malaga is bringing big changes to the official route. From this year on, the brotherhoods will make their way through Calle Larios in the opposite direction, as of now it will be the official route from the Plaza de la Constitución. With this change, many brotherhoods have changed their schedules and the position they go through on the official route.

One of the great novelties that the new route brings is the act of penance in the Cathedral that will now be carried out from the side of the Cathedral with a new ramp that has been installed in recent weeks. This new itinerary for 2019 has allowed that the number of brotherhoods that will pass through the interior of the Cathedral can go from 19 to 15 which is a great improvement.

Rest and Relax

Not everything could be about the thrones, in Malaga there is room for many other plans and without a doubt in Valentina Home we are very fond of going to the beach in the morning and having a nice walk. In addition, if the weather is good, it is not a bad option to take the first dip of the year, since we have the great luck of having a Mediterranean climate that usually offers a good time during these dates. After the walk along the beach of La Malagueta, what do you think if we go to one of the chiringuitos and try an authentic Malaga spit, a delight that you have to try if you are in Malaga. In the afternoon, relax in Pedregalejo from where you can see the sunset, sitting in one of its many bars on the seafront, having dinner or having a drink with no other concern than living in the moment.
