This post is also for Pat at Sunshine and sewing basket blog who particularly requested some photos of the processions.
I wanted to get these photos out to you as soon as possible of the different Holy week processions as they really are spectacular. Unfortunately my new mobile phone with enhanced camera functionality ( the main reason I decided to buy a new mobile phone) is so enhanced that it is hiding its functionality from me at present therefore my own photos taken at the processions were rubbish! I have therefore relied on these quite wonderful photos taken by a local photographer on Gente by Alicante
The Christ from Santa Cruz meets up with the Christ of the Sea at the door to the cathedral
The Holy week coming to an end and Christ Resurrected encounters Our Lady of Joy in the Town Hall square.
Look at the Virgin's cape!!!!
and the next event is "La Santa Faz"which is on 1st May this year.
Thanks so much for sharing these photos, it looks like a brilliant festival!ReplyDelete
