Holy Week in Antigua, Guatemala: Admiring a Sawdust Carpet at La Merced
Guatemala

Holy Week (Semana Santa) is the biggest festival of the year in Antigua, Guatemala. The events culminate in Good Friday (Viernes Santo) when families and communities work together for hours and hours to make sawdust carpets (alfombras) like the one pictured above. However, the life of these carpets is short-lived; once the procession walks over, it is destroyed forever. The church - La Merced - is home to the biggest procession of the week on Good Friday.


Taken by Dan and Audrey on their journey around the world.
