San Bartolo Procession

Yesterday was held the procession of San Bartolo that lasts all day and all night in Antigua Guatemala. Thousands come to Antigua to see this famous procession. It’s one of the largest in the place. This beautiful image has captivated thousands of people from Antigua Guatemala and elsewhere in the country. It is amazing the number of people who walk in the cobbled streets of the colonial city just to accompany the famous image of The “Nazareno de la Caída”. When the procession arrives at the Central Park, half block from Hotel Palacio Dona Leonor, the Bishop is blesses the image with a prayer and the musicians harmonize the place with his music and songs. Going to Antigua Guatemala for this dates is quite an experience.
