Huerto de los Olivos

Cofradía de la Oración de Nuestro Señor en el Huerto de los Olivos y María Santísima de la Amargura.

Iglesia de las Comendadoras de Santiago (two floats)

Where to see it:
Due to the great difficulty when the procession passes and returns through the Realejo district, this part of the procession is very impressive. It is also where the image is received by a crowd of members of the Brotherhood.

First float:
Representing Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane praying in the presence of an angel while the disciples are asleep.

All the figures are by Domingo Sánchez Mesa (1944).

Second float:
María Santísima de la Amargura.

Author of the image:
Anonymous (17th century)

Penitents: 100

Assistant dressers: 50

Interesting details:
The float carries relics of San Juan de Dios and Fray Leopoldo, made by Navarro Arteaga. The relation between the Brotherhood and the nuns of the Convento de Comendadoras isnoteworthy. The Virgin wears one of the most stunning garments of all the statues used for Holy Week.
