The Best Cities to Visit in Mexico for Semana Santa
Once again Easter in Mexico is one of the most important religious festivals with traditions that date back centuries. During Easter, the whole country is filled with colorful and exotic Easter celebrations, everything from religious processionals on the streets to events commemorating the passion, the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
During Easter and Semana Santa, we love to relax with friends and family and also to visit some of the historically famous cities in Mexico for Semana Santa activities. If you’re looking for the best cities to visit during Holy Week in Mexico, we have the top cities here.
Semana Santa in Mexico City
Mexico City is one of the best cities to visit in Mexico during Easter, probably due to its huge population and size which allows large processionals and Easter parades to pass without holding up too much traffic or causing chaos. If you want to experience Mexican traditions during Holy Week, the Iztapalapa delegation has been performing one of the most famous representations of the passion and death of Jesus Christ for more than 150 years.
Holy Week in Taxco, Mexico
Taxco is a beautiful, colonial mining city and an inspiring place to enjoy Semana Santa in Mexico. During the Easter season, Taxco becomes a colorful attraction where special masses are performed exemplifying the Stations of the Cross in processionals on the streets. You can’t miss the one-of-a-kind Procession of Silence that takes place at midnight every Good Friday in Taxco.
Semana Santa in Querétaro
The historic center of the beautiful city of Querétaro is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and during Holy Week, Querétaro plays host to an array of festive events, parties and processionals to commemorate the important Holy Week dates. Less than an hour away is the Pueblo Magico of Tequisquiapan, where you can relax among the vineyards, cheese ranches and mineral water spas during the Semana Santa holiday.
Holy Week in Michoacán, Mexico
The state of Michoacán is one of our favorite places to enjoy Semana Santa in Mexico. The gorgeous city of Morelia is an excellent starting point to enjoy the religious manifestations and Purépecha traditions that are presented in several nearby towns such as Uruapan, Tlalpujahua, Pátzcuaro and Tzintzuntzan.
