Video: Palm Sunday in Sevilla, Spain

Happy Palm Sunday. In honor of Holy Week, I’m sharing daily clips from Rick Steves’ European Easter, my one-hour public television special that’s airing now nationwide (check your local listings) and streaming online.

In today’s clip, we’ll experience one of Europe’s most bombastic Holy Week celebrations: the processions of Sevilla’s Semana Santa. Beginning on Palm Sunday, neighborhood congregations around Sevilla adorn their floats with flowers and candles, as “costaleros” prepare to carry those floats through the streets on their backs, amid a parade of cloaked penitents.
