Benidorm celebrates the 'Palm Sunday'.

Thousands of people have celebrated this Palm Sunday the traditional blessing of palms and olive branches in the churches of San Jaime and Santa Ana, and also in the church of Almudena.

Before the Holy Mass, there was a procession of palms around the parish, in which hundreds of neighbors and tourists toured the old town with their palms, led by the mayor of Benidorm Toni Pérez, Senator Agustín Almodóbar , the deputy Manuel Pérez Fenoll, the parish priest Juan Antonio González and members of the municipal corporation, together with a large representation of children and members of the Brotherhood of Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno.

The festival, which marks the beginning of Holy Week, has as its main protagonists the children, who, according to tradition, are presented with a palm by their godmother to be blessed that day.
