A beautiful procession went by our hotel balcony in Cordoba....



A beautiful procession went by our hotel balcony in Cordoba. Here’s the background on Spain’s Holy Week processions: 30-50 guys carry a very old, heavy altar (weighing over a ton) through the streets from their neighborhood church to the city center and back to their church again in unison for up to 8 hours while the sinners (hooded people) carry candles, crosses, or banners. Horns and drums typically play, mourners/ladies in waiting walk along, children sometimes lead the way. It’s a highly organized, very special ceremony for Catholic Spaniards and it’s common to see people touching the altars, weeping, and clapping. Once the altar has finished it’s route, it stays in a protected spot in the church until the next year’s Holy Week. #Cordoba #Spain #HolyWeek #procession (at Hotel Conquistador)
