With the arrival of spring comes Easter week. It has centuries of history behind it and is one of Spain's most authentic and emotive celebrations. The streets of the vast majority of Spain's cities, towns and villages become the stage for religious fervour and devotion, combining grief and meditation in memory of Christ's death. The Holy Week in the historical and University City in Tenerife, La Laguna, is especially famous in the Canary Islands. The most important days are Easter Thursday and Friday (Viernes Santo).
