Interesting details:
The float of the “Borriquita” marches separately of those of Amor, which stop at the Cathedral. The float is the last one covering the Official route, being this Brotherhood the oldest of the day. Like that, the participation of the Nazarene children preceding this float is easier. This particular cortege is the main pool of young members of the city. In 2000, as an exception, it went out with both floats of the cortege of Amor; due to the torrential rains at midday, the Committee decided to wait to the Holy Week.
