Palm Sunday in Granada - Processions and Fraternities

buriquilla in palm sunday of granada On Palm Sunday five 'cofradías' (fraternities) parade through the streets of Granada.

At 16:00 the church of Nuestra Señora del Perpetuo Socorro opens its doors to let out the popular procession called "La Burriquilla". The Holy Week in Granada begins.

This procession represents the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem and many children take part in it by dressing up in biblical costumes and carrying palms. The best place to see it: when it passes under the Arco de Elvira.
