Regardless of the religious side of this Week, one may say that Spanish streets in general and Andalusian streets in particular become outdoor museums that show unique pieces of artwork made by Spanish artisans. Carpenters, Jewellers, Leather Workers, Embroiderers, Goldsmiths and quite a lot of other Guilds work together in order to create items of priceless artistic value.
