The Cuaresma (Lent) period which leads into Semana Santa (Holy Week) begins every year with Miércoles de ceniza (Ash Wednesday). As in previous years, I set myself aside and let my dear friend Nelo share his excellent Cuaresma imagery since he’s quite possibly the person with most photos of Lent and the Holy Week; he’s been covering almost every Lent and Holy Week for over a decade.
Below Nelo shares different vistas of the first velación, vigil, of the Cuaresma at Iglesia de San Felipe de Jesús.
