Maundy Thursday in Granada - Fraternities and Processions

moundy thursday in granada Maundy Thursday is certainly the Albaycín´s big day, when thousands of people flood the neighbourhood looking for the best spot to watch their cofradías.

Amazing, indeed, it is the work of the costaleros carrying 'Nuestro Padre Jesús del Perdón and María Santísima de la Aurora' through the narrow and winding streets. They leave San Miguel Bajo church at 17:40.

And, at 16:45, from the Monastery de la Concepción comes another spectacular procession: the Virgen de la Concepción with  Nuestro Padre Jesús del Amor y la Entrega.

The procession of María Santísima de la Estrella and Nuestro Padre Jesús de la Pasión will be climbing the very steep Cuesta de la Alhacaba at around 00:30 to return to the church of San Cristóbal at the very top of the Albaycín. This is truly overwhelming.

At the stroke of midnight, from the parish church by the Carrera del Darro, this beautiful icon made by José de Mora in the XVII century parades through the streets of Granada accompanied only by drumbeats.

There will be no processional marches, only the sound of footsteps of the costaleros. There will be no festive atmosphere, only one of penitance and silence. When they pass street lights go out.
