A whole programme of different activities takes places during Easter in Talavera de la Reina. It includes nine processions, the competition of cornets and drums (in which bands from all over Spain participate), church music concerts and sculpture exhibitions, among others.
The setting in which Easter is celebrated in Talavera is very beautiful, and the possibility to watch it from its walls, magnifies it even more. Its more than 3,000 brothers, dressed up in tunics and hoods or head-covered, carry frames and images of high artistic value, accompanied in their itinerary by music and choirs.
This Easter in Talavera, considered a mixture of Andalucian and Castillian traditions, stands out for their Liturgies, some of them as important as Procesiones de la Borriquita, Procesión del Silencio or Procesión de la Pasión y del Santo Entierro, which can all be seen from the walls. Likewise, El Encuentro de Jesús Resucitado con su Santísima Madre, El Sábado Santo in the plaza del reloj and the dramatization of some passages such as The Passion, The Holy Funeral and the Ceramic Via Crucis
