Procession of The Merced Virgin, , Jerez Patron, 24th september






 


                               


Today  has been the day of our Patron the Merced Virgin and we live next to the Basilica. The members of the brotherhoods have decorated the street with coloured salt representing the shields of every brotherhood. The bishop, the Mayoress and brothers have accompanied the Virgin in the procession. The flowers that decorated  the "Paso" (the place where they transport the image) were tuberoses
