Year of Foundation
Founded in 1629

The “Cofradía y Esclavitud de Nuestra Señora Madre María Santísima de las Mercedes” was changed to the “Cofradía de la Esclavitud del Cristo y de la Merced” in 1732. The image of the crucified Jesus, made by Gregorio Fernández (Valladolid, 1628), became famous in Compostela with crowds flocking to venerate the sacred image on Ash Wednesday and to the procession on the second Sunday of Easter (Dominica in Albis), which went from St. James’ Basilica to the Monastery of Los Mercedarios in Conxo.
The procession and brotherhood were revived in 1980.
