The Festival of the Holy Christ in Fisterra is held during Holy Week, with re-enactments of the Passion of Christ by a group of town locals, followed by thousands of parishioners, in the area around Santa María das Areas Church, on the road up to the lighthouse.

The most important of these takes place on Easter Sunday. It is an allegorical religious play which depicts the moment in front of the tomb of Christ guarded by Roman soldiers when an angel brings the women the news of the resurrection of Jesus. Amidst the expressions of joy and happiness, and the hallelujahs that erupt from the thousands in attendance, bells ring, bands play, rockets are launched and doves are released. This culminates in the 'Dance of Our Lady of Areas', whose origins date to the 17th century.
