León - Processions during the Semana Santa

I dedicate these pictures to Mariusz (mkamionka) who likes processions and parades so much and who showed us a picture of the procession of Corpus Christi not that long ago.

I was in León from Holy Thursday to Easter Sunday and during these days there are many processions on different places in the city.
In my hotel they had a leaflet with the times and the places of the different processions. But there were so many and to my question which ones were the most beautiful or the most interesting, everyone gave a different answer.
So it was a bit trying.

Some processions did not last long, completed a limited path and had only a limited group of spectators. In others the Nicaraguans were present in large numbers.
I thought the Holy Week was definitely an interesting time to visit León.

My main picture shows a smaller procession from the Iglesia El Calvario to the cathedral.
Funny but some pigeons walked along in this procession … even on the first row :) 
