Practicing For The Easter Parades

Ayamonte Spain – Santa Samana

Strictly speaking this is a religious festival, but for most of the week, solemnity isn't the keynote – there's a lot of carousing and frivolity, and bars are full day and night with entire families, from grandparents to babes in arms staying up late.

In essence, Semana Santa involves the marching in procession of brotherhoods of the church and penitents, followed by elaborate floats on which sit seventeenth century images of the Virgin or Christ. For months beforehand, the bands practice their short, fervent flamenco style hymns about the Passion and the Virgin's sorrows throughout the city.

This week has seen the practicing in Ayamonte and its looking good!
