Traditional “Posada Navideña” of the Brotherhood of Jesús Nazareno of La Merced Church

Posadas navideñas are small processions enacting the search for shelter of Joseph and Mary right before the birth of baby Jesus. Here I captured the start of the traditional posada of the Brotherhood of Jesús Nazareno of La Merced Church in Antigua Guatemala. Below I captured the posada as it passes by the Ermita del Santa Calvario in the most souther part of Antigua Guatemala. I was told this was the first time the posada from La Merced passed in front of the El Calvario. I am glad I was there to capture it.
