Easter week Seville


Semana Santa (holy week - easter) has been one of the most important celebrations in Seville for centuries. It may have it's origin as far back as the 14th century! During holy week the Cofradías (Brotherhoods or Fraternities) process in penitence through the, many narrow, streets of the city, from their church to the Cathedral for a sacred ritual and back, taking the shortest possible route, as decreed in the rule of the ordinances in the 17th century. In these processions they carry floats with the representations of Christ and Mary.
