Both the statue of “Santo Cristo de la Unción” and that of “Nuestra Señora de la Serenidad” were made in the 20th Century by the Compostela sculptor Castor Lata.
The procession also includes the cross of “Los Infantes,” one of the brotherhood’s identifying symbols, which is carried by 22 children.
Since 2003, the “Santo Cristo de la Unción” has appeared in the procession on a throne made by the goldsmith Ramón Orovio brought from Ciudad Real.
A youth section made up of 31 young people has existed since 2006.
Year of Foundation
Founded in 1953
From 1974 to 1993, the brotherhood did not hold its procession due to different problems.
The brotherhood has twinned with the brotherhoods of “Nuestra Señora de las Angustias” in Ferrol, “La Santa Cena” in Baeza (Jaen) and “La Flagelación de Nuestro Padre Jesús de la Bondad y María Santísima del Consuelo.”
The following are honorary members: the Prince and Princess of Asturias, the city of Santiago, La Brilat, the La Salle brothers Tirso Verdugo and Salvador Revilla, and Juan José Cebrián Franco.
