Traslacion reaches Quiapo in record time
The Black Nazarene arrived at Quiapo Church at around 8:49 p.m. on January 6, or about 16 hours since the procession began.
The Traslacion, or the procession of the life-size image of the Black Nazarene from the Quirino Grandstand in Rizal Park to the Quiapo Church, began earlier than expected at a little past 4 a.m.
The religious procession lasted for a little over 16 hours, which was about 5 hours faster than the 21 hours recorded in 2019.
In previous years, here’s how long the procession lasted:
2019 – about 21 hours
2018 – about 22 hours
2017 – about 22 hours
2016 – about 20 hours
2015 – 19 hours and 25 minutes
2014 – about 19 hours
2013 – about 18 hours
2012 – about 22 hours
Authorities earlier changed the route due to safety issues with the bridges the procession used to cross.
