HISTORY

The origins of the Franciscan Brotherhood Piety Virgin are united, inseparably, to the Secular Franciscan Order of Palencia (former Third Order); this one participated from time immemorial in the processions of the Palencia Passion Week. The decline that, given the shortage of brothers, suffered in the mid-twentieth century, made it give up it presence in 1973.
