Guide Semana Santa 2022 – Sweet Sevilla Accommodations

 

Holy Week in Seville is coming, one of the most important weeks of the year because the city transforms and is filled with people and life. Hundreds of nazarenos cross the city center accompanying their brotherhoods in different processions depending on the day of the week. It is a unique moment to visit the city that will make you fall in love with it even more. Staying in a centrally-located accommodation is the best decision, as you will be able to easily reach the key points to make the most of such a special time. At Sweet Accommodations we have two accommodations in the center of Seville: Sweet Sevilla Suites, next to the emblematic Plaza de la Encarnación, and Sweet Sevilla Hostel, a few minutes walk from the cathedral.

Here we leave all the tips you should know to to enjoy it like a real Sevillian:

  • Every day different brotherhoods go through the whole city from their church to the official race. To know where they go and their schedules, we recommend you to get one of the informative books that are distributed through the streets of Seville the days before Holy Week. If you don’t get one, don’t worry, here we leave you all the itineraries of all the brotherhoods according to the day: https://semanasantasevilla.es/itinerario-oficial/ 
  • Official Race: it is a section of the center through which all the brotherhoods pass along their route. It starts at the Plaza de la Campana and goes down to the Cathedral along Calle Sierpes and Plaza de San Francisco. It is a closed section, in which there are “palcos” (chairs) for a fee and through which you cannot pass after a certain time of day. At certain points of this section there are steps to cross it controlled by the police.
  • Keep in mind that the schedules that they put in the programs is the time at which the guide cross passes, the beginning of the passage of the brotherhood. After this cross are the sections of Nazarenos de Cristo, followed by the Paso de Cristo, and then the sections of nazarenos de Virgen, followed by the Paso de Virgen. Some brotherhoods have three pasos, such as La Trinidad on Sábado Santo (Saturday). In addition, you must keep in mind that public transport does not work normally during these days due to the brotherhoods. You should be aware that if you arrive in the city on one of these days, it may be a little more complicated than usual to get to your accommodation.
