Semana Santa

Semana Santa in Seville is acclaimed as being one of the best Semana Santa’s in all Spain. The last time I was there I drank more manzanilla than I witnessed processions. I’m sure this time will be little different. Though the air is solemn, it’s still a party: to celebrate death to birth in a weekend, how could it not be? Traditions and superstitions and an excuse to get together… until next week.
