Holy Week/Semana Santa

One of the most solemn yet joyous times in Mexico, Holy Week marks the occasion of Easter with processions, passion plays and religious festivals. Schools let out for two weeks before and after Easter, and it is common for many families to travel during this time. In Mexico City, massive crowds turn out to watch reenactments of the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, particularly the extremely-well known Passion Play of Iztapalapa. As residents and visitors alike partake in the country's religious traditions, this is an extraordinary time to witness the culture of Mexico City.
