Brotherhood of Nazarean Jesus and Our Mother of Bitterness keeps its foundation act, dated December 26, 1604. It follows a previous existence, at least unofficially, since it says that in this first "Cabildo" (assembly) was found all the Brotherhoods of Jesus Nazareno, that "again" is based in this city. Some of these brothers indicate their trade or employment, seeing, right from the beginning, that within the Brotherhood there is room for all social classes. This tonic of union of all the brothers, without any distinction, continues in the following times and to this day.
