Holy week in seville

Holy Week in Seville is one of the most important events that occur each year in the city from a religious and cultural viewpoint, celebrated the week of the first full moon of spring, a few weeks before another major event that is April Fair in Seville.

Holy Week in the city is one of the most important in Spain and has an international impact around the Catholic world.

Declared of International Tourist Interest. Also, Seville boasts among its titles that of "Mariana" the only city in the world that does.

The week runs from Palm Sunday until the following Sunday which is Easter Sunday, with processions each day of images representing the Passion of Christ, totalling (for the week) over 60 Confraternities.

There are many people from Seville that accompany the images dressed the custom Nazarene way carrying candles, crosses and preceding the procession as acolyte thurifers.

Others perform the penance procession carrying ritual portable platforms on their shoulders as bearers. Holy Week is lived year round in the city and fraternities work daily in the three fundamental pillars that define them: education, worship and charity.

There is much care work that fraternities and brotherhoods perform in Seville and its province. The penitential processions are the main external worships of the guilds, but the fraternities also perform much internal worship to their incumbent throughout the year (novenas, quinary, triduum, Hand-kissing, proclamations, conferences, Via Crucis....)

There is a General Council of Fraternities and Brotherhoods, whose members are elected every four years by the elder brothers of the different fraternities, in charge of organizing the Holy Week and streamlining procedures and arrangements with official institutions for everything related to the official procession.

Some processions are accompanied by the music of bands, musical groups or choirs, although there are fraternities without musical accompaniment.

It cannot be described, you have to live it

Regardless of one’s religious beliefs, unquestionably, in Seville Holy Week is lived with a passion absolutely indescribable.

For art lovers, like myself, there are some of the most vivid and best examples of religious imagery that one can imagine, and in the same city, with its smell of incense. It cannot be described, you have to live it.

There, it is tradition to bring Holy Week to life on the street. Go to see the start of a procession and wait in a bar, having a drink and some tapas, the rest of the parade completes its route through the streets before changing locations.

For those who know the town of Seville well it’s great, but for those of us who tend to get lost especially taking into account that many streets are cut off by people that don’t let you pass. Sometimes the best solution is to find the cathedral surroundings, and even better the back door facing Calle Mateos Gago and the archbishopric, where all processions obligatory pass through.

Undoubtedly, one must bear in mind if you want to go, the issue of airline tickets, when you have no train or bus to take you, and the issue of accommodation must be booked well in advance, if not prices shoot up. What is known as renting of balconies, chairs etc., is extremely expensive and usually has plenty of subscribers each year.

Tradition of holy week in seville

Although some have criticized this tradition, the Holy Week endures through time as one of the most important on a national level.

There are those ve criticize the tradition or do not value it as they should. Outside the religious aspect, for a week we can see on the street carvings of incalculable historic and artistic value, for free, wrapped in an aura of mysticism.

Furthermore, it is a heritage passed down through families.

Increible balcón en sevilla

Vivir la Semana Santa desde un balcón es una experiencia inolvidable. Disfrutar de unas vistas privilegiadas, casi tocando el Cristo o la Virgen al paso de las procesiones es una experiencia única. Además puedes disfrutar de un magnífico catering y disponer de un espacio privado para reunirte con tus familiares o amigos.

Madruga with the five senses

Low orange incense permeates me and chance, in the busy Queen corner box of dreams, in the crowded alley appeared the passionate master, and between the lines of delicate scenes glimpsed heads next to heaven. When tiredness fills my body and when it falters cold hot chocolate permeating the recent churro, revive energy to the last and most moved by the lords of Seville. Enbebido on crowd organized and helping hand who makes the noise when I learned to shut wanted to talk, I learned to watch when I wanted was to look, I learned to smell when it wanted to sniff, I learned to clap when wanted to stir, and above all, with the impatience of a child before their first experience, I saw the way through.

Madruga con los cinco sentidos

Bajo en naranjo me impregne de incienso y azar, en la apretada esquina se cuadro la reina de los sueños, en el concurrido callejón apareció el apasionado señor, y entre la línea marcada por las cabezas entreví delicadas escenas próximas al cielo. Cuando el cansancio invade mi cuerpo y cuando el frio lo tambalea el chocolate caliente, que impregna el churro reciente, revive la energía ante el último y más movido de los señores de sevilla.
Enbebido en la organizada multitud y de la mano amiga de quien hace la bulla aprendí a callar cuando lo que quería era hablar, aprendí a observar cuando lo que quería era mirar, aprendí a oler cuando lo que quería era olfatear, aprendí a aplaudir cuando lo que quería era alborotar, y sobre todo, con la impaciencia de un niño ante su primer experiencia, vi el paso pasar.

Artistic contrast end

Metrosol parasol is so different from the buildings of Seville that Easter capture images under its structure when it is still less flashy. I from an artistic point of view I see although opinions enriching for everyone.

Contraste artistico extremo

Metrosol parasol es tan diferente a las edificaciones de Sevilla que captar imágenes de semana santa bajo su estructura no deja de ser cuando menos llamativo. Yo desde un punto de vista plástico lo veo enriquecedor aunque hay opiniones para todos los gustos.
