Procession featuring parish cross accompanied by a rattle, band music with bugles and drums and the Municipal Music Band.
Its members wear a black serge habit with olive-green wristbands, hood and sash.
The float features the “Última Cena del Salvador,” which won a prize at the Paris Universal Exhibition, a statue of the last supper made by the Compostela sculptor Sanmartín in 1864.
The “Nazareno de Medinacelli” that is part of the procession was recently donated to the brotherhood by the nuns of “La Compañía de María,” the Compostela church where a replica of the statue is kept.
The procession’s “Dolorosa” is a statue of the Virgin belonging to the Third Order of St. Francis and is attributed to the Galician sculptor Ferreiro.
