Andalucia Diary – Seasonal Travel Notes

Easter In Yunquera Andalucia

Easter Sunday, Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park

Went to mountain village of Yunquera for Sunday Lunch – took in the Easter procession. Couldn´t believe even the young kids were involved, taking it all very seriously, carrying a trono with an an icon of Jesus. The kids were also enjoying one of the Easter specialities not seen much outside the villages – bread with a hard boiled egg in it! (A little like the ‘mona de Pascua‘ that one finds in Catalunia and Valencia)

Children carrying an Easter Sunday Trono in Yunquera, Jesus is holding the bread with egg!

    I’ve just come across your blog and have spent an interesting half an hour browsing through the entries.
    I think your photos are inspiring and would be interested in seeing a post from you in the future about your camera and photographic techniques and tips.
    You have a lot to offer other amateurs like me..
