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.

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.

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.
