Holy Ghosts


A covered Paso in a church in Granada

Semana Santa (Holy Week) is one of the most important traditional events of Andalucia. It is celebrated in the week leading up to Easter. The week features the procession of pasos, floats of lifelike wooden sculptures of different scenes of the events of the Passion or images of the Virgin Mary or other saints.

A Paso (Spanish for Pace or Step) is an elaborate float carried by costaleros and are usually followed by a band. Some have long skirts that cover the bearers entirely, giving the impression that the statue is floating on its own power.
