Road Trip: Visita Iglesia

Eversince I was kid I was  doing Visita Iglesia during Maundy Thursday, as part of Holy Week (Semana Santa) in Christianity is the last week of Lent and the week before Easter.

Visita Iglesia (Church Visit) is a Holy week tradition where devotees visit seven churches or religious sites and pray in and recites the Station of the Cross.
