La Semana Santa Sevillana

La Semana Santa Sevillana es la conmemoración anual cristiana de la Pasión, Muerte y Resurrección de Jesús de Nazaret. Es una celebración de carácter sociocultural, turístico y económico de gran importancia en la ciudad. La semana abarca desde el Domingo de Ramos hasta el siguiente domingo que es el Domingo de Resurrección. Las hermandades salen en procesión desde su iglesia o capilla hasta la catedral y regresan cada día sacando sus pasos con imágenes o grupos escultóricos, en ocasiones de gran valor histórico-artístico. Éstos representan escenas de la Pasión, Muerte y Resurrección. Van acompañados de un importante cortejo de penitentes o nazarenos que visten el hábito de la cofradía. Llevan cirios, cruces, faroles, estandartes y un acompañamiento musical.

La noche más importante se conoce como “la madrugá” y va de la noche del Jueves Santo al Viernes Santo. En ella procesan las seis hermandades más antiguas de la ciudad durante más de doce horas. Hay más de 11.000 nazarenos y 12 pasos.


Holy Week in Seville

Holy Week in SevilleThe Holy Week in Seville is the Christian annual commemoration of the Passion, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. It is a celebration of great sociocultural, touristic and economical importance for the city. The week goes from Palm Sunday to the next Sunday which is Easter Sunday. Brotherhoods go out on procession from their parish church to the cathedral and back every day taking out their elaborate floats with images or sculptural groups, which sometimes have great historical and artistic value. These represent scenes of the Passion, Death and Resurrection. They are escorted by a great courtship of pointy-hood penitents or Nazarenes who wear the habit of the brotherhood. They carry large candles, crosses, lanterns, insignias and a music band.

The most important night is “La madrugá” and it goes from Holy Thursday at night to Good Friday. In this night, the six oldest brotherhoods in the city go out on procession for more than twelve hours. There are more than 11,000 Nazarenes and twelve floats.
