EL PASO´ RIOGORDO´S PASSION PLAY (RE-ENACTION OF JESUS´LIFE AND DEATH)

Riogordo is a typical Andalucian white village, situated 35 km north of Malaga , in the region of Axarquia. Semana Santa, Holy week, is celebrated with enthusiasm and emotion in the village. Following a tradition that can be traced back to XVIIth Century, the Passion and death of Christ are re-enacted in a stunning open air spectacle. Since 1951 the ¨Paso¨, or Passion play, has been performed annually, with more than 500 members of the village taking part. The play is set in a customised natural theatre, set on a hillside, of more than 8,000 m2 . There are excellent views from all six thousand seats of this colourful pageant. A modern sound system ensures perfect amplification of the performance and music. According to Paris Match, ABC, Cambio 16, Sur, El País, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, etc. We are one of the best “Pasos” in Europe. Why don’t you come and see it?
