Antonio Banderas, a Malaga, Spain, native, returned to his hometown to participate in the Maria Santisima de Lágrimas y Favores procession.

ANTONIO BANDERAS CELEBRATES PLAM SUNDAY IN MALAGA, SPAIN

The actor took part in a Palm Sunday celebration. Banderas described the meeting as being “without a doubt” a very special reunion, after suffering a minor heart attack in January. Also in attendance at the procession was his girlfriend Nicole Kimpel and his brothers, Francisco and Javier.

“Corazón cofrade, somos fusionados, miramos al cielo, un espejo azul Domingo de Ramos,” Banderas said in an emotional moment (translation: “Heart brother, we are fused, we look at the sky, a blue mirror Palm Sunday”). Then the actor raised his head toward the Virgin Maria and held the medal of the brotherhood.

The day before, Banderas and Kimpel attended the Lágrimas y Favores Foundation gala in Malaga.
