A mantilla is a women's lace scarf that is worn over the head like a veil. This type of garment is most often worn in Spain. In fact, the word "mantilla" is Spanish for "little mantle." Although the mantilla was once quite popular, it is usually worn in modern times only for special occasions and religious celebrations and especially during the Holy Week (region of Andalusia )

Great light on the main subject of this well composed image. Guess it must be something very serious they're involved with as there are few smiles to be seen.

Excellent photo and it is good to wear that sort of thing to keep tradition alive, like it Effrossini, my Grandmother on my fathers side used to wear one, she was Spanish Portuguese, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
