Ramos09Palms will be blessed in the park next to the cemetery at 12 noon. From there we will progress to the church for mass.

Please take note that the blessing of the palms/mass will be at noon, not at 12:30 as usual. This way Father Javier will have enough time to celebrate mass at his other parishes, (Benarrabá, Benadalid, Estación de Gaucín). In the picture, palms are blessed last year at the park.
