There is nothing quite like Semana Santa (Holy Week) in the lovely Sevilla. I truly have never seen anything like it in my life, it is so special to Spain that you have to come here to really experience anything close to it.
For the first part of Semana Santa, I traveled to Amsterdam and went to the beaches in Malaga for a day to relax. It was so incredible, and I still got to see a good few days of Semana Santa aqui en Sevilla! The most amazing night was the night after I got to sleep in after my travels in Europa. I went out with 3 of my very close friends to the center and I really couldn’t believe my eyes. I saw people from all over the world, including many Americans, and everyone was here to see the festivities. People were dressed up from head to toe, and the streets were covered in wax from the candles of the processions as well as some unknown objects…it was awesome. I had never seen Sevilla like that before! There were hundreds upon hundreds of people and I could barely recognize the streets! Sevilla completely transformed.Blog6 Gabriella
