Una procesión

Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is a big deal in Granada. One of the highlights is the processions, where la Santa Imagen (a statue of the Virgin Mary) is mounted with burning candles on a platform the size of a car and carried from its church home through the streets and back, accompanied by the faithful who also carry burning candles and sometimes walk barefoot.

Last week I heard music and just happened to catch part of a procession down our street in honor of the Holy Year of Mercy. (It was delayed by two days because of weather, which may explain the small crowd.)
