Antigua Lent Processions: Jesús de Santa Inés

2011 Jesús de Santa Inés Procession by Leonel -Nelo- Mijangos

The village of Santa Inés is located on the edge of La Antigua Guatemala, to the right of the road that takes you to Guatemala City. I shared with you a photograph of the road taken from Santa Inés on April 1, 2011. I would venture to say that because Santa Inés village is located on the exit road to Guatemala City many people do take the time to visit, myself included. It’s a shame because Santa Inés has an interesting layout, mostly a strip on a downhill. Also, Santa Inés is very rich and colorful with a strong sense of community as these photos show.

I will try to convince Nelo to share his photos of all the other velaciones and processions from the other villages or churches for the upcoming weekend; with three more days of Semana Santa photos we’ll be in tune for the Holy Week which is fast approaching upon us.

    You know what the best thing is about the villages around La Antigua ? There is always one more to visit !
    Thanks Rudy and Nelo … I took a walk into, I think it was, San Antonio (?) on my last visit, but on the next voyage, I’ve got to see these other places. And I need a pair of boots, too (Arturo’s suggestion, I believe), Y un tecolote, y….una mochila mas grande.
    I don’t know, Rudy, maybe this ‘LAGDP’ thing is not such a good idea. How are your readers supposed to visit even half of these places ?
    ;D

    • @Eric, I don’t know about all the LAGDP readers, but I am sure you will move down to Guatemala so you’ll have no excuses of not having enough time to visit everything. 🙂
