The Merlú
(23)
"The Merlú". The interesting name comes from an urban sculpture in front of the Church of San Juan de Puerta Nueva, Plaza Mayor Zamora. It was made in bronze by sculptor Antonio Pedrero Yeboles Zamora in 1966. It is for the most important event in Zamora, which is Easter. It Represents two brothers of the Brotherhood of the Nazarene, and it has an interesting meaning which is as follows: the night of Good Friday, six couples of brothers of this fraternity out in the streets of the city, they were responsible for waking up and gathering in the square to the other members of the brotherhood (almost 5,000) for the procession. These pairs are called "Merlú" and awaken others by bugle and drum. The sculptures are an exact depiction of these events.
