Semana Santa is a major holiday week in Spain, and the tradition of Semana Santa religious processions is as popular as ever, if not more. Hundreds of thousands of people, dare I say millions, will stand for long hours along the streets to watch the brotherhoods in hooded garb solemnly march by as they accompany images of the Passion around the town. But does that reflect an immense show of faith, or are these events looked at more culturally than spiritually? Listen and learn more. Enjoy!
