We were incredibly lucky to be in Antigua, Guatemala for the famous Semana Santa Guatemala (Holy Week) celebrations which are revered as some of the best in all of Latin America. We were also there purely by chance on those dates, one of those times where a lack of planning turns out better than we could ever have imagined!
You can read about our experience of Semana Santa in Antigua here, but one of the main elements of the celebrations are the intricate and delicate floral displays laid on the road for the processions to walk over on their journeys. People spend hours preparing them, only for them to be walked over by the processions and swept away afterwards. Here are some fleeting glimpses of some of our favourites from the celebrations!
