Easter activities (2024): Daily schedule of the Semana Santa processions

easter activities

In Seville, Easter activities must be perfectly organized. In this sense, the processions’ schedule has to be strictly coordinated and respected as every day 8 or 9 processions can take place.

The Cathedral and Giralda Tower are closed to visitors in the afternoon during Semana Santa.

Secure your visit getting your skip-the-line tickets in advance! You’ll access the Cathedral, the Giralda and the Iglesia del Salvador.

Here’s a list of every procesión, according to the day they parade and their order of entrance to the Cathedral.

I’ve included the time of exit from and entrance to their home church, and the time it takes to watch a whole procession parading at a certain spot.

However, keep in mind that except for the exit time, the rest are approximate times. Since so many processions take place at the same time, often times they are delayed. So be patient and flexible.

Additionally, I’ve described the nazarenos’ clothing to help you recognize each brotherhood, in case you step into one without planning it!

It happens quite often when you get lost in the city center. I’ve been lost myself so many times in Semana Santa… And, without any doubt, you’ll be too.

Easter activities in Seville: processions’ order and schedule

Take into account that 60 brotherhoods cover the streets of Seville from their home church to the Cathedral, showing public penance. This means that more than 60,000 nazarenos and penitentes flood the city in just a week.

This is why the Consejo Superior de Hermandades have agreed the routes of the 60 brotherhoods and each one is requested to follow its schedule strictly.

The processions’ order has been historically determined according to a set of rules of precedence, tradition, canonical needs, agreements between brotherhoods and logistical considerations.

As a consequence, most hermandades don’t process in chronological order. There are a few exceptions though, such as La Borriquita (The Little She-Donkey, depicting Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem), La Cena (The Last Supper) and El Santo Entierro (Holy Burial).

The cofradías need also to respect a very strict schedule referring to the entrance of each one of them at the Carrera Oficial and the Cathedral. Otherwise, they would step on each other and without any priority the Sevilla Semana Santa would be a chaos.

Therefore, you’ll soon realize that a map and a daily schedule of the processions are essential. With the schedule, you’ll have a list of the approximate times when you can see the processions at a particular point.

The order and times of each day currently displayed correspond to the 2024 official information. The number of nazarenos and the times are approximate.
