The image of El Señor de la Columna belongs to the church in Atotonilco, but travels to San Miguel de Allende for the Holy Week rituals. This photograph was taken in the 1960s, when the beloved statue is part of the Good Friday ceremonies. Holy Week is observed all over Mexico, but San Miguel de Allende's fervor and pageantry is some of the most powerful and beautiful.
