Holy Week: Women’s Float

Holy Week: Women's Float

You normally see men carrying the big heavy processional floats or andas as they are known in Guatemalan Spanish. You can browse the Processions category to see the huge Holy Week floats for which La Antigua Guatemala is famous for. However, behind the massive floats there are, almost always, smaller floats carried by women. Today’s entry shows you such women’s float; and quite small to be honest.

Hah, and you thought men were the only who were penitent during Semana Santa in Guatemala.

If you were in La Antigua Guatemala for Lent or the Holy Week, would you buy a turn to carry the float?
