However, this takes place almost at dawn, 31 March 2021, and it's a long way from the city center.

The University of Granada has its own cofradía, whose icons are those of 'Nuestro Señor de la Meditación and María Santísima de los Remedios'.

The participating students and professors wear their penitential robes, and a number of them (up to 30) take part as costaleros, who are hidden from view as they bear the huge weight of the trono's structure, which shrouds them.

Holy Wednesday is a big day at the Realejo: three processions parade from their churches.

And at 19:00, the crowds wait in the square by Santo Domingo church to see the popular procession of the 'Virgen del Rosario y Nuestro Padre Jesús de las Tres Caídas'.

The same crowds gather again long after midnight to accompany the cofradía on their return.

You will see the purple nazarenos of the cofradía of 'Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno and María Santísima de la Merced' arriving at around 21:10 to Plaza de Santo Domingo from the Monastery of the Carmelitas Descalzas.
