Medina del Campo, located in the heart of Castile, in the province of Valladolid, has one of the most outstanding Holy weeks of Spain dating back to 1411. It was declared as an International Tourist Interest Festival in 2011.

In 1411, when Saint Vicente Ferrer took the initiative of parading through Medina del Campo’s streets for his “disciplinary processions”, not only began the Passion of Christ commemoration but also the launch of the celebrations which are currently known as “Holy Week”.

Every year, the Passion in Medina del Campo begins on the Friday before Good Friday (Viernes de Dolores) with the Virgin of the Angustias’ outing. During the ten following days, acts and penitential parades occur, bringing the most notable renaissance imagery of Castile brought to light by hundreds of believers grouped into nine brotherhoods (cofradías).

Medina del Campo has more than thirty floats or pasos which participate in sixteen processional marches, an example of the most important Renaissance imagery of Spain. Those images are a mixture of the works of modern and contemporary sculptors such as González Macías, Ricardo Flecha, Manuel Romero and Mariano Nieto, among others.
