It is Holy Week time in Popayán. Serenity and devotion guide the steps of the pilgrim crowd that, among prayers and chants, follow the processions celebrated and remember with expectant joy the passion and resurrection of the Christ. The scent of burning incense floods the atmosphere and the warm spirit of celebration conquers the cold of the night when the air is loaded with prayers and the joy of Christian celebrations takes shape. In "Holy Week in Popayán", discover the devotion for a religious celebration that brings people together and that pays homage to the mysteries of religion, its traditions and the rooted meaning that it has as part of the powerful Catholic legacy in Latin America. Nonetheless, far from being an event imbued with melancholy, the Holy Week celebrates life and praises it beyond death, as part of life itself and thinking about it as the stop before reaching for eternity.
