Semana Santa 2008

Published by at 3:23 am under 1st half 2008

Dear friends!

The week before Easter is always very special here in Seville, it is the week of the ‘semana santa’. Everyday a lot of religious processions take place in the several districts of Sevilla, where very old associations carry an altar with wooden statues of Jesus Christ or Maria through the city to the main cathedral in the center of Sevilla. This processions is accompanied by very interesting classical brass-music (‘marchas’) and hundreds of ‘ Nazarenos’, which are dressed up mainly in black or white. Well, difficult to explain all details, so have a look in our photo gallery:

Additionally check out some great photographs of local artists of one of the local newspapers:

 For children they offer a lof of ‘caramellos’, which give this serious event even a family touch as well.

Friends, happy Easter to you all,

The von Wartburg-Family
