Santuario de San Miguel Arcángel

General Information

In the year 1631 to Diego Lazaro de San Francisco, who was in a procession, the Archangel appeared to him without others noticing and ordered him to convey to people that he would make water sprout from a ravine near a spring of healing water to cure diseases. As he did not comply for fear of not being given credit, the Archangel punished him and he fell ill. Being in dire need of death he appeared again, but now all saw a great light fill the room, leaving frightened. When they returned, they found him healthy and told them that Archangel had taken him to the place with his staff brought forth the miraculous water and gave him health. Then the demons fled in droves. It was so that miraculous events began to this day they continue and it was there that immediately built a hermitage. In the atrium is the well of healing water, sheltered in a small chapel. The holiday is on September 29th, but throughout the month it receives hundreds of pilgrims from around the country.
