...being there, but without the crowds
A procession from our balcony
The "mantillas" of the Holy Week in Seville
For this event, the city of Seville wears its best dress, as we may well say: not only banners draped from the balconies in the town centre, but the whole population dresses up elegantly as a sign of respect for Christ’s Passion. In these days, the city essentially splits up between the thousands of people that physically take part in the processions, and those who admire and support them from the side of the streets: a well-behaved and elegant presence, very sober, that helps create an intense yet quite pleasant atmosphere, attentive and at the same time very free.
As usual I offer solutions in private apartments in Seville during the Holy Week that allow you to follow the processions from a privileged point of view, with the comfort of having room on the back to rest, freshen up, snack and use sanitary facilities. In particular, the most significant and absolutely exclusive offers are those of “Semana Santa by the hour” and the “balcony tour”.
