Previously, the Procession of Hallelujah was performed by confraternities that opened the procession, with its cloaks and flowered torches. In the early twentieth century, with the disappearance of these brotherhoods, the Procession of the Torches has lost some glamour due to the introduction of some changes: the flowered torches (thick candles) gave way to sticks ornamented with flowers and the singing of the antiphons gave way to a deafening chant, where stands out the cry of "Hallelujah." Men continue to open up the procession. After the procession the party continues in the Churchyard, with a cultural soiree and are distributed prizes to the most beautiful torches that took part in the procession of Hallelujah.
