Adeje recovers Holy Week with processions and La Pasión after two years of pandemic

Representación de La Pasión de Adeje

Holy Week in Adeje returns after two years of hiatus due to the pandemic and will recover all the processions and the representation of La Pasión.

“We are happy, it is the Holy Week of the return to normality and for Adeje it has a double significance. On the one hand, as a tourist town, where we hope to receive people who come to enjoy their holidays; and on the other hand, as a municipality that respects, cares for and loves its traditions”, said the mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, at the presentation ceremony. The councillor highlighted the innovative staging of La Pasión: “We will combine the television-film format and the live performance in the Plaza de España. We have made the problem into an opportunity, as we are going to have an excellent filmed product that will allow us to promote our municipality as a sun and beach holiday destination, but also as a heritage, gastronomic, cultural and ethnographic destination”.

Alberto Álvarez, coordinator of Culture, indicated that "almost all the scenes of La Pasión have been filmed in various natural and heritage sites in the municipality, with amateur actors and actresses." The broadcast of the film will link with the direct one in the Plaza de España where the meeting of Mary with Jesus and his subsequent crucifixion will take place.


The retransmission can be seen on Friday, April 15, at 12 noon, on Televisión Canaria, Mírame TV, 13 TV nationwide, Canal 4 Tenerife and Canal 10. The Representation of the Passion of Adeje is an outdoor play that narrates the death and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Three hundred people participate in the Representation of La Pasión, including cast, management, assistants, operating personnel, art, props, costumes or makeup.
