San Miguel de Allende
San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico
Easter in San MiguelThough less well known than in Antigua, Guatemala, the Easter celebrations (Semana Santa) in San Miguel De Allende are every bit as beautiful and intimate. Many of the cobblestone streets are covered with alfombras (colorful carpets of pine needles, flowers and plants). The week is filled with processions and reenactments of the last days of Christ.
This photo was taken on Good Friday, where the women dressed in black carry a float (Anda) during a candlelight procession.
