The Virgin of the charity of El Cobre (Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre)

A pleas­ant dri­ve about 12 miles north­west of San­ti­a­go leads to this basil­i­ca ded­i­cat­ed to the Vir­gin del Cobre, whose image alleged­ly appeared on a piece of float­ing wood to three men in a boat dur­ing a rough storm; the Vir­gin is said to have mirac­u­lous pow­ers, and pil­grims jour­ney here every Sep­tem­ber to seek help and pay trib­ute to her for their good fortunes.

Did you know that….Pope John Paul made a vis­it to the Basí­ca del Cobre near San­ti­a­go dur­ing his 1998 trip to Cuba. Inside the basil­i­ca, among the many gifts left at the shrine to the Vir­gin del Cobre is Ernest Hem­ing­way’s Nobel Prize, which he left there in 1952.
