In contrast with the silence and solemnity of most “Semana Santa” processions, the Fiestas de la Virgen del Castillo in the Murcian town of Yecla feature a colorful display of waving flags and banners and blasting noise. These fiestas that celebrate the miracle performed by the Virgen del Castillo, ending a military confrontation without bloodshed, have been declared of National Touristic Interest and and hope to win international recognition too.
