An important pilgrimage center

Basilica of the Virgin of Charity of Copper, Patroness of Cuba. This monument is located about 25 km away from Santiago, in the place where the Spanish used to run a copper mine. It is an important pilgrimage center. The slaves ve worked in the mine were granted their freedom in 1801, about 75 years earlier than their brothers of cambos cane.

It is a place to find oneself, an invitation to reflection and inner peace.

It is the quintessential church Cubans, every day many people gather there to ask virgin for health, their families, their needs, their desires and anxieties.

Es un sitio para encontrarse con uno mismo, una invitación a la reflexión, y la paz interior.

Es la iglesia por excelencia de los cubanos; cada día se reúnen allí muchas personas a pedirle a virgen por la salud, sus familias, sus necesidades, sus deseos y sus angustias.
