In Malaga, & other places in Spain, over the Holy Week period there are a number of long processions.
Organised by brotherhoods (hermandades or cofradías in
the processions are parades consisting of at least two large
floats, one carrying a Christ figure and the other
a figure of the
virgin with members of the brotherhood carrying the floats or walking in
front of them.
