A little history of Holy Week of Sevilla

First of all, it is known that there have been brotherhoods since the Middle Ages. And from the 16th century they began to have a greater presence in the street. Although they did not reach the cathedral, the procession was only between nearby churches.

In 1604, Cardinal Fernando Niño de Guevara established some rules: the confraternities were obliged to carry out the penitence station to the cathedral and those of Triana had to carry it to the church of Santa Ana.

Holy Week of Sevilla

In the nineteenth century Holy Week in Seville had two serious problems. The first of all the French invasion so there were no processions from 1808 to 1810. On the other hand, the disentailment of Mendizábal in 1836 which led to the loss of many properties.

But in resurfaces thanks to the sister of Queen Elizabeth II in 1849. They helped to celebrate Holy Week in Seville by promoting brotherhoods such as that of Montserrat and the Lanzada.

At the end of the 19th century, during the period of Bourbon restoration, the brotherhoods reappeared in number and splendour and they began to be considered a tourist attraction for the city.

In the twentieth century there were also problems during the Second Republic and the Civil War.

After the war it was recovered again and in 1980 together with the Holy Week of Malaga they obtained the title of Cultural Interest.
