Origin and Legends of Holy Week
Holy Week in Seville has structured the history, personality and customs of the city from its origin in the Middle Ages to the present day. But how does it arise? How did the Sevillian experience it and make it his own throughout history? How has it been present in the day-to-day life of its streets, squares, bars, conversations and throughout the city's calendar?On this route we are going to start at the Casa de Pilatos to delve into its origins. How and where was the first Holy Week? What was the first Brotherhood? And the first Nazarene? What do the hoods mean? Where do the steps come from and why like this?We are going to immerse ourselves in its streets from Alfalfa to Salvador, from Plaza Nueva to the Parroquia de la Magdalena to learn about its most curious and anecdotal intrahistory. The origin and evolution of the Official Career, the artists and their works, the music, the smells, the ephemeral and the eternal. Duality; Brotherhoods of Silence or Neighborhood, Brotherhoods of Cola or Cape, Macarena or Triana….A journey through the intrahistory and curiosity of a festival that is not the result of chance, where we will answer questions and unknowns that define the identity of Holy Week as we contemplate it today.
