Contemporary testimonies

In a disorderly procession, those on foot mixed with those on horseback, in pain and in tears, making a great noise, loaded with their wives and children, their sick people, dusty, sweating Some of them were on foot, worn-out, poorly clothed, with shoes and espadrilles, others with their coats to the neck There were a lot of women of rich Moors with chokers, necklaces and with coloured costumes and clothing that concealed the pain in their hearts. The others, the majority, were on foot, tired, sore, lost suffering unbearable hardship, enormous bitterness, dying from pure grief
