In the 2007 Auction, for the second consecutive year,
when the bid for the Virgin of Sorrows popularly known as "la
Dolorosa" was deserted, in the end a group of women finally bid
for her, their concern did not stop there, since days later they
convoked a meeting, they finalized the creation of a Brotherhood
to said Virgin. Only of women.
The Brotherhood of Our Lady of Sorrows was founded,
made up of 43 brothers of very varied ages, the election of its
Board of Directors was decided by vote.

style, 17th century, measures: 1.40, unknown author, located in
the church of Santa María, we do not know anything about it in
documents and we even do not know its origin, which we admit is
from the church of Santa María because it is in her.
Processional image since
1959, which was introduced in the procession of the Holy Burial
on Good Friday in the afternoon, by the priest D. Camilo Pérez
It is the Virgen Dolorosa
de Juni, who, by incorporating the knives into it, has become
the Virgen de las Angustias, with a modification of the type and
His face is a mask with an
upward gaze, begging for mercy, because the drama of the heart,
pierced by seven swords (knives), forces it. These seven swords
correspond to the seven pains suffered by the Virgin. Her
intertwined hands hold a rosary, which may come from a donation. A
tight-fitting condom covers the candlestick. On her a mantle
falls folded from the head to the foot of her. On her tunic,
embroidered in red and silver, she wears a heart pierced by
head a golden crown with alternating crosses and beams of rays.
