Lent in Antigua Guatemala Began on Ash Wednesday
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.
