Easter Celebrations

Semana Santa, or 'Holy Week' in Spain is a collection of festivals that centre around pilgrims taking part in penance processions through all the major cities of Spain. Celebrated in the last week of Lent, immediately preceding Easter itself, this festival of Catholic piety is particularly popular in Seville, featuring 'pasos' - life-like sculptures of Biblical scenes from the Crucifixion, or of the Virgin Mary.
