  • The small sanctuary "El Cobre" is located in the heart of the Sierra Maestra and the bright Basilica of the place. She perched majestically on a green-clad hills. In it, the dark-skinned Virgin of mercy or goddess "Ochun" is worshipped depending on the confession of faith and the there the offerings are diverse and some strange German feel. Thus the a small sheet metal pieces (Cobre) at the foot of the statue of the Virgin and thereby hope to cure their ailments, and again others cut off the thick cable (braided ponytail) her toddler (4 yrs), "distort" the child, let him bless and hope this then? On what? Well, I didn't get it and was seemingly horrified that the hairs were taken the little girl, but who knows what it was good! Inside the Basilica, I found not as impressive as from the outside. All in all, but worth seeing
