Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala

Lent has started and Antigua Guatemala is turning purple… During the forty day period from Ash Wednesday leading up to the Holy Week of  Easter, there are weekly processions and wakes that are taken very seriously. Streets are decorated, saw dusts carpets are in the making and hundreds of thousands of people come to Antigua to be part of this spectacle. And a spectacle it is!
