About the Book
Granada, Spain as a city alone is a gem already - the beauty of its ancient buildings and the common Moorish and Christian heritage create a very special atmosphere. The Alhambra, one of the most significant structures of its kind in Europe, is a must-see for every visitor in Granada.
But when the Holy Week - Semana Santa - arrives, beauty and atmosphere rise to a new level. The processions offer a breathtaking view into the century-old tradition of how the Granadinos celebrate the days before resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This book is about all that - a display of the undisputable beauty of the Alhambra and the countless other attractions this major European city has to offer, and an in-depth view on the major processions and the unique ambience during those days. Accompanying texts are in both English and German. Enjoy!
