Sacramental Brotherhood of Nazarenes of the Holy Christ of Agony and the Saint Virgin Mother of the Redeemer Our Lady of Health.
It was founded in 1979 by a group of devoted of the parish of Santa Victoria. Since 1979 it went on procession on Holy Monday along the streets of the neighbourhood of Naranjo, and in 1989 the image of María Santísima Madre del Redentor(Saint Mary Mother of the Redeemer) was included. On Holy Tuesday 1996, the brotherhood had their station of penance along the official itinerary. In 2004 they celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the enthronement of Santísimo Cristo de la Agonía(Holy Christ of Agony) and the twenty-fifth foundational anniversary of the Brotherhood.
Parish of Santa Victoria. It was one of the foundations of the great bishop of the city in the 50s: Brother Albino González. Like in the rest of his projects, the neighbourhoods of Cañeroor Cerro, the church is the centre of the area, although this one is smaller than the rest. Following a project by architect Carlos Saenz de Santa María, the temple was dedicated to Saint Acisclus’s saint sister. The altarpiece at the main altar comes from the Church of San Pedro and it was located in one of its side naves.

The image of Santísimo Cristo de la Agonía (Holy Christ of Agony) was made by religious sculptor Antonio Castillo Ariza in 1954.
It is a crucified Christ agonising on the cross. It is a complete sculpture, very simple and elegant. It is smaller than real size, and we can highlight his expressive face. His features are not very marked, such as the hair and beard, with big wavy locks. His lost look does not completely match the character of the moment, of agony, pain, suffering.
The crown of thorns, by Miguel Arjona Navarro, is not excessively ornate, and it is causing the wounds with blood falling down the Lord’s face. The tree-like Cross was made by José Carlos Rubio Valverde, and it has “titulum” and edges, all of them in nickel silver.
Santísimo Cristo de la Agonía (Holy Christ of Agony) is one of the most loved images in Holy Week in Córdoba. Despite being very simple, it is recognised in the city due to the great effort the brotherhood has to make to get to the Official Itinerary from such a modest and far neighbourhood.

Althought it does not accompany Santísimo Cristo de la Agonía (Holy Christ of Agony) on its station of penance on Holy Tuesday, Nuestra Señora de la Salud (Our Lady of Health) receives a great devotion from the people of the neighbourhood. It was the first work carried out by sculptor from Córdoba Miguel Ángel González Jurado in 1988.
Only her head and hands are carved, it is an image to be dressed. Her head is slightly turned right. She has a low look, straight nose and marked chin. This Virgin is frowning her eyebrows as a gesture of pain, and is slightly opening her full lips, as a contained suffering gesture.
Purple tunic and face-coverer, white buttons, cincture and gloves.
