Holy week Day tour at Antigua Guatemala

Semana Santa or Holy Week in the Spanish-Colonial city of Antigua Guatemala offers a spectacle worth a visit whether you celebrate Easter or not.

Within a 24-hour span, layers of sand are placed on Antigua's cobblestone streets and then covered with multi-colored sawdust, decorations, pine needles, flowers, and other plants, creating exquisite natural carpets.

You can start taking this tour during The Easter season—known as Lent—begins on Ash Wednesday (February 26, 2020) with Decorated churches and special vigils or explore the city during Holy Week starting April 5th.

All the Antigua Guatemala religious floats during the holy week are a "not to miss" when you visit Guatemala. But there are 4 special processions you should keep in mind when booking your tour:
- Palm Sunday
- Good Friday
- Holy Saturday
- Easter Sunday
