A mantilla was worn mostly by Spanish women. It was a veil that would cover the face. The veil would be held up by a peineta or a comb.

Semana Santa is the Spanish Holy Week taking place in the Spring. Churches prepare very intricate floats depicting religious figures and during Semana Santa, participate in processionals through the city of Seville. Each float weighs hundreds of pounds and are supported by men that walk however many miles it takes to get from their church to the cathedral and back. Some floats are accompanied by bands that play traditional procession music.
