Greetings from Antigua…wish you were here!
Photos taken March 10th inside a church in Antigua, Guatemala.
The alfombras, or colorful carpets, elaborately decorated on the grounds of churches and streets throughout Guatemala, especially in the days leading up to and following Semana Santa, are quite impressive. Made of colored sawdust the colors are so brilliant that they often hurt your eyes. Each one is unique and each one a work of art. Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Guatemala is one of the largest celebrations in the world and Antigua has quite an offering of processions and events.
