Semana SantaAntigua, Guatemala is famous for its elaborate and vibrant religious festivities during Semana Santa, or Holy Week, leading up to Easter. Thousands of visitors crowd the cobblestoned streets to watch the costumed processions.
Brilliant carpets, or "alfombras", made of colored sand, sawdust, wood shavings, pine needles, flowers, vegetables, and candy line the streets. The intricate designs are then trampled when the processions pass over them!
