Guatemala: Semana Santa in Antigua – Alfombras

Alfombras are elaborate flower and sawdust carpets that are made before the Semana Santa processions. First a layer of sawdust flattens out the cobblestone streets and then flowers, colorful sawdust, fruits, pine needles as other natural stuff is used to create super elaborate carpets some 20-30 meters long. They are truly spectacular! And then processions walk through them.
