    It’s a pity that the rain damped so many of the processions in Granada this year. But you might still be able to catch sightings of some of the pasos (floats) on their way back to their original churches. Last Saturday, I saw a post-semana santa procession through Gran Via complete with a band and people carrying one of the pasos. You never know what you’ll stumble upon in Granada!

    Very true that you never know what you will stumble upon in Granada. Whether it is organised street performers, a wedding party letting off fireworks, or a religious procession, nearly every weekend there seems to be something that catches the imagination.
