The Descent of the Angel

Fiestas, traditions and events of interest



This long-standing tradition is held on Easter Sunday in the Plaza de los Fueros of Tudela. Festival of National Tourist Interest, an angel, incarnated by a child, descends from the skies until reaching the image of the Virgin, whose head is covered by a black veil as a sign of mourning for the death of her Son. The heavenly spirit dislodges the veil, a gesture that evokes the joy at the Resurrection of Christ.
