This week is Holy Week (Semana Santa), the week of the Passion of Christ in Catholic Spain. People are enthused now that restrictions are no longer as prohibitive as they were during the pandemic. (It's over now, isn't it? Is it?) Natives and visitors can join the famous religious processions without masks although it still is advisable to wear them because these processions are packed with devotees and keeping social distance is next to impossible. Also, attendance at the liturgies requires protective face coverings when held inside churches.
