More than 100 Pasos (floats with statues of saints) are carried through the streets, accompanied by Nazarenos, about 50 members of brotherhoods, dressed in long robes and pointy hats. In the early hours of Good Friday emotions blaze high as the Virgen de la Macarena is carried around in the middle of 2500 Nazarenos, the Virgin on her journey to the cathedral.

Mentality
