Semana Santa preparations

Semana Santa crossSeveral homeowners are now displaying crosses draped in purple in their front yards in anticipation of Holy Week, Semana Santa.  Processions and re-enactments will begin Friday morning and continue throughout the weekend.  (Photos to be posted.)  Government offices are closed all week, bus service is limited (on Thursday) and no alcohol is available for purchase during the weekend.  This is a week when there is a mass exodus for the beach.  If you are planning to go there, avoid returning to the Central Valley on Sunday, if you can.   The autopista will be like a parking lot.

  1. Despite the holidays ,Easter is a perfect opportunity to see colorful religious processions. Individual towns also celebrate their patron saint’s day: highlights usually include a procession, plus bullfights, rodeos, dancing, and other parades. Fireworks and firecrackers are a popular part of local fiestas and church celebrations.
