The last time we visited Seville, was back in 2012 during Easter . We took an early flight to Malaga, arrived in the morning then took the train to Seville. It was mid day when we got there and then the hunt for a suitable hotel within budget, kicked off. That wasn’t easy as it took us a good two hours to find the right place. While looking around for accommodation, we noticed that there was some kind of celebration going on. We didn’t actually realise it was la Semana Santa !
Every day from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, large life-sized pasos (Sculptural representations of events from Christ’s Passion) are carried from Seville’s churches through streets to the cathedral, accompanied by processions that may take more than an hour to pass.
