Every day of the week has its own processions and brotherhoods, which are responsible for carrying out the tours through the streets of the city, accompanied by music bands and numerous faithful and spectators. During the processions, the steps are carried on the shoulders by the brothers, who parade through the streets dressed in their robes and colourful capitals, creating an impressive image of religiosity and devotion.

Through the streets of the Historic Center of the city, an official tour is designed by which the brotherhoods make their processions with the images, belongings and nazarenes that make up the procession. All along this route chairs and seats are placed in different places to enjoy the processions.
