Semana Santa

The first day of Semana Santa , ( Easter Week), is today; Palm Sunday-El Domingo de Ramos.

Last night there was a very well attended Mass in the church here in the Plaza, to celebrate the day when Jesus rode into Jerusalem, and was welcomed by the people laying palm leaves on the ground on front of him.

Here in Spain, it is celebrated by carrying a palm or olive branch which is blessed by the priest, then hung up on your front door or window for Holy Week.
