Semana Santa processions Seville 2012 evidence
Posted: Apr 11, 2012
Had a beautiful experience in Seville last week/end for the Easter processions. Such a powerful, emotional tradition! Paradox of reaching beyond but firmly rooted in the terrestrial. Although this is clearly in the public much time is spent chasing down the processions (or crossing the processions) on small side streets. Thanks to Patricia Terry for the guidance.
Here are the processions we witnessed:
Friday Midnight to 1400
El Grand Poder (entering church at dawn)
La Esperanza De Triana
Friday 1600 - Sat 200
La O (entering church)
Saturday 1300 - Midnight
Los Servitas (singing nuns)
El Santo Entierro (by far the most frightening, on many levels not to mention the VIPs on the route)
La Soledad (entering church at midnight, incredible huge/silent crowd and 4 amazing tributary singers form the balconies)
El Resucitado (entering church, white robes)
Photos, in chronological order.
