I have been to Seville this weekend. It is Easter and the city is full of people. I visited the main tourist spots on the site. All of hem Wonderful.
Maria Luisa Park is an oasis in the middle of the city. The Plaza de España with its brick architecture and ceramic decoration is charming.
I have also been in the Cathedral and I have been lucky because I had not bought the tickets and even so, on a Saturday, I managed to get in as there was a little queue only. To my surprise, Sunday morning the entrance was free because there was a mass at 11 in the morning. What a thrill to hear a choir with more than 50 voices accompanied by an organ built in 1901.
All these “touristic tours” would be enough to leave me happy with the trip but what has almost killed me with emotion, has been just the movement in the street.
The preparation for the Pasos (street religious processions), the smart people dressed for this special moment, expected troughout the year, etc
I had the feeling of being in the middle of a volcano that was going to explode with such emotion. It is wonderful to see people of all ages, in their blue robes (in general), elegant and proud of being serving the cause. A religious cause where faith is the most important.
The Pasos are wonderful. Each of them, prepared throughout the year so that only one day go out to the street to express all the devotion of its people and their Brotherhood.
Seville is much more than a touristic town. Seville is a meeting point for people who like me, believe in something bigger. Believe in something that keeps us strong and eager to move forward.
Thanks Seville, it has been an honor to be with you these days
I attached a video with some images that I have been able to capture even though the camera does not convey the emotions I was experiencing.
