Easter Week in Sevilla


Seville recreates the passion and death of Jesus Christ during its famous Easter Week. Around 50,000 people dressed as penitents take part in over fifty processions accompanying the religious images. The highlights are definitely the carved figures of the Virgin under canopies. These Baroque images are dressed in silver or gold crowns, embroidered mantles and velvet tunics. There are processions every day. The climax comes in the early morning of Good Friday, when images such as Jesús del Gran Poder, la Macarena, la Esperanza de Triana and el Cristo de los Gitanos take to the streets. This is the night that is experienced with particular intensity long after sunrise. A common feature of the sessions is the singing of 'saetas'. These are flamenco songs that are sung a capella as the images go past. Each possession has its own route, but all must pass along the 'official course' which begins in Calle Campana and ends with the departure from the Cathedral.
