Semana Santa Sevilla


The Semana Santa (Holy Week), like any other religious, cultural and sociological event, is in no means an ephemeral occurrence.

Below find a brief historic summary up until the present.

The background of street processions resulted from the institutionalization of the Vía Crucis (Way of the Cross), which was introduced in 1521 by the Marqués de Tarifa (Marquis Don Fadrique Enríques de Ribera) upon returning from the Holy Land.

From that date onwards it is tradition to celebrate annually this holy day, the different stages are divided by using portable Crosses and Altars.
