Andalusians are renowned for their fiestas, uniquely celebrated by entire villages, towns and cities. Amongst the most famous one, the Semana Santa (Holy week), sees its most glamorous celebrations in the region of Andalusia.
A common feature is the nazareno or penitential robe for some of the participants in the processions. The centre of attention, however, is the floats with their respective images of Christ and the Virgin Mary. These massive, heavy floats are carried on the shoulders of numerous members of the religious. It is a particular honour to carry the floats and some will even do so barefoot as a sign of extreme penitence.
