Long Description:
"Holy Week in Cáceres , declared of International Tourist Interest in 2011 , lasts eight days (from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday , ten if you count the processional transfers, Friday of Sorrows and Saturday of Passion , of several brotherhoods.Their steps are of the Castilian tradition, that is, they are carried on shoulders, although since 2006, with the birth of the Brotherhood of Health, there is also a clear Andalusian influence as there are brotherhoods at costal, a case that generated controversy initially, However, on February 6, 2008, the Hermandad de la Esperanza del Vivero (known at the time as the Dulce Nombre) marked a new stage by being the first Andalusian-influenced brotherhood to rehearse with its gang of costaleros.

The processions depart and circulate mainly through the Old Part of Cáceres , declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO , except for four (the two of the Brotherhood of the Holy Spirit, the one of the Brotherhood of Esperanza del Vivero and the one of the Brotherhood of the Christ de la Victoria), reaching the last two to the center of the city. One of the processions in the center of the city, that of the Black Christ, circulates entirely through the old part, representing one of the most important moments of Holy Week ."
