Easter – Semana Santa – Holy Week Teror 2024

Holy Week arrives in Teror with an intense program of religious events and processions prepared by the Parish of Teror from the Basilica del Pino. The program, as is tradition, will begin with Palm Sunday, March 24, and the Burrita procession, offering six processions throughout the week, in which some of the most valuable works of Canarian imagery guarded by the Basilica del Pino will take to the streets. Among them, those made by Lujan Pérez, such as the “Lord tied to the Column”, the “Virgen Dolorosa” and the “Saint John the Evangelist”. Throughout the week until March 31, except Monday, March 25, processions will take place, and the Via Crucis will take place on Holy Thursday, March 28.

As a novelty, this year some of the processions vary their route, such as the one on Holy Tuesday with the ‘Lord tied to the column’, recovering the old processional route through the neighborhood below, crossing Mina Street. Also, the first route of the Holy Encounter procession will recover its old route.

‘Saturday 30 March Quema de Judas’ 

The traditional burning of Judas in Teror will take place on the night of the Easter Vigil on Saturday with a bonfire burning at the stake of a public figure.  This is for all you night walkers… the burning is at 23:00

The Easter Vigil and the traditional Burning of Judas in the municipality of Teror, as a symbolic religious act (outside of the religious program), marking the fabled betrayal of Judas, and at the same time contains present-day social criticisms too. As is tradition, Judas is performed by a group of young people from the municipality and represents a modern-day famous person, the name of which will not be known until Saturday night, to the surprise of the attendees. In recent years they have varied characters offered up for the Burning, including locally known characters Pocholo, la Pantoja de Puerto Rico, as well as Britain’s Prince Charles and even America’s orange-skinned 45th ex-president…

The giant “rag doll” (an effigy over six meters tall) will be paraded starting at 18:30 through the streets of El Casco and El Rincón, in a truck and accompanied by the ‘Swing Goloso’ heading to the Plaza de Sintes, where it will be burned by the community at 23:00, and there will also be a fireworks show. After the Burning, the festival begins at the Plaza de Sintes with Línea DJ and Furia Joven.

The Burning of Judas is a tradition that formerly was celebrated in almost all towns throughout Spain, and it has still continued in Teror (among a few other places).

Easter Sunday, 31 March:
at 12:45 Procesión del Señor Resucitado – Procession of the Risen Lord
Route: Plaza Nuestra Señora del Pino, c/ La Herrería, c/ Nueva, c/. Del Riego, c/ Real de la Plaza, Plaza Nuestra Señora del Pino.
