An objective information about our Villa must give pride of place to the penitents of the Cofradia of Santa Veracruz in San Vicente, known as 'Picaos', since this is a religious manifestation of the most important and well-known in Spain and is so closely linked to San Vicente, which currently can not speak of the persistence of this ancient rite elsewhere. San Vicente de la Sonsierra is the people of the 'Picaos'.
