Holy Week in Sao Paulo
Religious festivities throughout Brazil.
For Brazilians, Holy Week remains one of the highlights of the year as religious fervour takes centre stage.
Every strata of society takes part in the celebrations which take place throughout Brazil. Each region conserves its own unique costumes, which often embody the syncretism and diversity of the country, symbolic of the blend of different cultures which has always been present in Brazil.
