Easter 2024 in Madrid: Essential Plans

February 20, 2024

Processions and Religious Traditions

If you don't want to miss the Easter processions in Madrid, you should know that the most popular ones are the Divino Cautivo Procession (Maundy Thursday), the Cristo de los Alabarderos Procession, the Medinaceli Procession (both held on Good Friday) and, of course, the Tamborrada (Drum-playing, held on Easter Sunday), which officially closes Holy Week. You can enjoy all these tours easily, as they all start in central locations that you can reach from our apartments on foot or by public transport.

Typical Easter Gastronomy

The Vigilia stews, the torrijas, the pestiños or the penitentes de Alcalá. During Easter, Madrid offers many traditional dishes you simply must try. The famous torrijas are the favourite and most desired sweets for many, so we recommend you visit La Casa de las Torrijas, a traditional tavern where many people go exclusively to try this typical dessert. It is only an 11-minute walk from our apartments. 

Churches and Cathedrals Tour

At this time of the year, Madrid's amazing churches and cathedrals are decked out to offer special masses and to highlight their beautiful architecture. From the majestic Almudena Cathedral (a 14-minute walk from Gran View Apartments) to the historic San Ginés Church (only 5 minutes away), every building deserves to be visited to admire its masterpieces. Are you ready for a cultural tour?

Walks in the City's Most Beautiful Spots

And, of course, if you're looking for peace and quiet, you can always wander around the city's beautiful gardens, such as the lush Sabatini Gardens, the romantic Retiro Park, or the Botanical Gardens. Make the most of Easter 2024 in Madrid and explore these enchanting sites to enjoy peaceful moments in the heart of Madrid. Remember that you can easily reach them all from our apartments.
