Year 2009, Seville. City Hall every year facilitates the different brotherhoods one-way free of vehicles and obstacles until the official race, cut the center of the city, which covers the route from Campana, calle Sierpes, calle Placentines, bread, plaza San Francisco square and Avenue of the Constitution until the Cathedral, (this is the official route which must necessarily perform all the brotherhoods) prolongation of the Constitution Avenue leads to the Prado de San Sebastian.

There are condemned to the unfortunate that had fallen into the hands of the Inquisition, then in procession along with other inmates the motorcade was heading to the Prado de San Sebastian, where those who were not burned at the stake were forced to witness such macabre feast for so purify your soul as they watched as they burned even her husband or wife and/or children of their own. Year 2009, Seville.
The authorities have adorned all official travel with garlands, flowers and banners for the passage of the brotherhoods, the brethren are happy, finally the expected day.

Today day has changed a lot, I wanted to make a parallelism, today no longer has the devotion that the guilds had 30 years ago, am from Seville, I was Catholic, enthusiastic me Holy week, from about 30 years ago, I’m what is known as Protestant (Evangelical Christian), today I don’t want to forget the Jews, Protestants, Gypsies, Muslims and even Catholics who died in the hands of the Inquisition by the mere fact of not embrace a faith that not believed, or envy, or as in the case of the Jewish, because it was the easiest way of enriching a few empty coffers by the vanity of their priests, bishops and Cardinals. they killed someone in a Jewish family and then expelled to others, but not before making donate to the Church all their possessions and riches.
