Incredible Colorful Streets Carpets Photos Made of Sand in Antigua

What is wonder than seeing Carpets made out sand and  sawdust and decorated with plants and flowers? In my opinion it's extraordinary and incredible . This happens in  some of Central American countries like Guatemala and Honduras, Semana Santa, or Holy Week,  This event is a very special celebration in all Catholic countries, but the people of Antigua manage to take it different every year. During the month of lent, processions run through the city streets, each Sunday, with people carrying large statues of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary. It’s truly a sight to behold, but it’s nothing compared to what happens during the last week before Easter. Local families and businesses work together to create the alfombras, incredibly beautiful carpets made of sand and sawdust, right on the cobblestone streets of Antigua.
