The most famous venue for the Semana Santa (Holy Week) is La Antigua Guatemala, but there are many more places in Guatemala where the processions and traditions are just as colorful.

For instance, take the processions of Cobán, in Alta Verapaz, like the Procesión del Jesús Nazareno del Perdón, Jueves de Semana Santa – procession of Jesus on Thursday of Easter week, a unique and colorful stamp of the fervor and traditions of Guatemala.
