1. Costume from the province of Cáceres.

It is the most representative and known costume in the North of Extremadura. Is it known as "picao", because of the embroideries placed in women's skirts, who wear too the typical one-hundred-colours-handkerchiefs and the typical necklaces. Men dress shorts with tights, waistbands and a sleeveless vest decorated with charros buttons.

10. Fregenal de la Sierra costume.

A new costume for the group is one of the two costumes which were at the beginnings of the group, doing one of them in this momento, and the other one being only a future idea. Both costumes have been illustrated with respect to similar models used in Eugenio Hermoso paintings, focusing the colourful and the flowers.

So, there are two models; one of them with long skirts for women with white aprons, beige shirts, white shoes and flowers. In the other hand, we have the costume made at the beginning: colorful shirts, long white skirts and black aprons.

For men we have also two new models: one of them is with corduroy trousers and white shirts, leather spats, a colorful waistband, a beret and a little blanket hangs from the right shoulder. In the same manner, we focus too the other model, simpler than that one; composed by a white shirt, black trousers, different colors waistbands and black shoes.

It is a costume only used for dancing to the Virgen de la Salud. It is unknown when it was born, although it is know it is a very ancient one. This dance is only performaced by men. They dance with a rigid white skirt and a flowers hat.

12. Jatero Costume is the typical clothing of our group

We always finish our performances dressing it. It is an adaptation of a regional costume from the province of Badajoz. A white handkerchief highlights, because it is used to dance the Fandango de la Virgen los Remedios, Patron Saint of Fregenal.
