This Brotherhood was resumed in 2003. Although it has an ancient tradition in the town, from the time of the Dominicans until the 60s, Formentera had a group of auroros.
The Brotherhood of the Rosary has an authentic jewel, a written document from the year 1900 where the couplets to the Virgen del Rosario are collected.
The main objective of this Brotherhood is to promulgate the Faith of the Rosary, and for that reason they have some important days for it. Every Sunday in October and November 1. During these Sundays in the month of October, the regional meetings of Auroros de la Vega Baja are held.
Formentera del Segura celebrated its own on October 22, 2006. For this event, the entire town turned up in a spectacular way, giving an image of hospitality to all the attendees. They still remember the Formentera Meeting as one of the most spectacular.
The towns that participated in this Meeting were: Albatera, Algorfa, Almoradi, Benferri, Benijofar, Bigastro, Callosa de Segura, Catral, Cox, Daya Nueva, Daya Vieja, Granja de Rocamora, Guardamar del Segura, Hurchillo, Jacarilla, Redován; Rincón de Bonanza, San Fulgencio, San Isidro, Santa Pola y Rafal.
