Semana Santa kicked off in Santo Domingo as planned, with a Palm Sunday or Domingo de Ramos procession through the streets of the Colonial City, re-enacting the arrival of Jesus into Nazareth.
Here’s a photo of the Roman Guards who headed the procession as is traditionally done.
One of its members spoke to me about the group and the meaning behind the procession. Check it out below or on Instagram (I know I said postcard, but heck, consider it a bonus).
Check back here soon for a full video recap.
