Santa Semana parades
The holy parades in Seville
Go to Seville, Spain, during Santa Semana--the holy week. Parades of hooded figures march around the city banging and booming drums at all hours. The city is truly alive and mysterious during this Catholic celebration, with all of Seville turning out in their finery. Watch out, though. The hooded celebrants are around every corner in every color, ready to startle--as are the statues of a crucified and tortured Jesus in elaborate floats
