Purple cone-head “Cucuruchos” are a big attraction around Antigua Guatemala in the Lent Season. Although Cucurucho’ dresses come in many colors, bright purple or violet are the most-often seen color. But, the purple/violet color is not only present in the cone-head dresses worn by the cucurushos, it is also available in banners that dress up windows and doorways in this very catholic colonial town. Come back tomorrow to see how the windows are dressed up in purple.
