The Department of Culture of Mazarrón has programmed 12 cultural routes on the occasion of the celebration of Holy Week that will be organized by the tourist activities company ‘TurismoMazarron.com’ and that will be guided by the journalist from Mazarron Miguel Rubio.
The Deputy Mayor for Culture, Ginés Campillo, the head of the aforementioned company, Jorge Durán, and the journalist himself revealed the details of these routes that are divided into two itineraries: one through the urban centre of Mazarrón with special attention to heritage religious and another of the Municipal Cemetery of the town.
The Councillor for Culture, Ginés Campillo, explained that the routes “will focus on religious heritage coinciding with Holy Week” since “in the absence of processions and other acts linked to the brotherhoods in the street we wanted to bring our religious heritage to those that they visit us, or our own residents who want to know more about it ”.
Ginés Campillo thanked the work of turismomazarron.com and Miguel Rubio “who is an added value because he is a great connoisseur of the history of the municipality and the routes make them enormously enjoyable.” Campillo also stressed that “we also recover the route through the cemetery that is always very successful, because each time it is done, the quota is covered completely, to complete this initiative.”
“The route through Mazarrón will show the churches of San Andrés, meeting point for the activity with a visit to the interior of the temple, and San Antonio; as well as the Town Hall and the Casino and the Sanctuary of La Purísima with an explanation of the exhibition ‘Ad Intra’ that can be enjoyed inside, highlighting the religious heritage of Mazarron “, explained Miguel Rubio who added that” we will also carry out the route through the Mazarrón Cemetery that we have already carried out on other occasions and which has had such a good reception ”.
