Miracle of Colon Cemetery

Tomb of Amelia Goyri, “La Milagrosa.” The legend goes that after she died in childbirth, her husband visited every day. When the remains were eventually exhumed, it is said that the bodies were intact, with mother embracing son, symbolizing maternal love. Today, the tomb is easy to spot because there’s a steady stream of patrons lining up to offer prayers for safe births at the site.
