As well, the guide, which is also available in a digital format, contains a directory about the businesses that are participating in the initiative.

The town’s mayor, Toñi Ledesma, said: “Projects like this seek to value the uniqueness of Holy Week in Alhaurín, which goes hand in hand with entrepreneurs in the gastronomic and accommodation sectors. It is essential to develop together a larger, more attractive, municipality where the people who visit us have an interest in staying or returning.

Ledesma also thanked the brotherhoods for the “commendable work” they carry out each year to present “this unique spectacle”.
