Holy Week in the Philippines or Semana Santa is a significant religious observance for the Roman Catholic majority Filipinos. Many communities observe Spanish-influenced Catholic rituals such as processions, especially during Holy Wednesday and Good Friday. Below are the highlights of the Holy Wednesday procession in the town of Guinobatan, Albay. The procession features lavishly decorated carriages with life size dioramas depicting the passion of Jesus Christ paraded across town.
