La Semana Santa en España


La semana santa

There are more than 55 church brotherhoods (hermandades), some dating as far back as the 13th century, which take part in Semana Santa, carrying over 115 different floats, or pasos, through the streets of Sevilla.

A paso could be as heavy as 2 tons and it is carried by the costaleros, people who are hidden under it.

Nazarenos accompany the pasos in the march and in some cases number more than 2,000 for certain processions

Semana Santa is Holy Week and Sevilla’s celebration is likely the most famous in the world.


La semana santa

El paso: float with the Virgin Mary or Christ, the main attraction of a procesión decorated with candles and flowers and at times depicting scenes from the bible. A float’s weight is an average of 1000 Kg, 1 tonne!!, sometimes very difficult to lift.


La semana santa

At various stages during the procession, the paso stops to receive a saeta, a serenade sung by one person to the imagen of the Virgin Mary. The pasowill stop during the singing. The polite thing to do is be quiet during the singing.
