After almost 20 years of marriage, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas divorced in 2015, but they still treasure their memories of one another.

In the actress’ most recent social media post, she reflected on their time spent together during Holy Week in Spain.

Catholics commemorate Christ’s suffering each year during Semana Santa, or Holy Week, in numerous Spanish villages with lovely processions as a penance.

Melanie shared images from the commemoration held this year between April 2 and 9. She reflected on how significant the occasion was during her marriage to the Spanish Oscar contender from 1996 until 2015.

She wrote alongside them, “One of the many extraordinary experiences he gave to the kids and me during the 19 years I was married to Antonio was our introduction to and subsequent love for Semana Santa.”. It’s Holy Week right now”.

It’s a time-honoured and excellent custom. Nearly a hundred thrones bearing images of Jesus and the Virgin Mary are carried through the streets of Malaga during Holy Week. From Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday, day and night. This week has been magical and fantastic.

Semana Santa, with ex-Antonio, comes to mind for Melanie.

The 65-year-old said numerous people followed these thrones on their occasional eight-hour journey. “The first time I saw Cautivo, it made me cry. I view it as a spiritual encounter”.

She wrote: “So for many, many years, I was privileged to be one of the 30,000 people who follow behind him on his journey through the city”.
