Then approached the most famous gravesite, "La Milagrosa" which means "the miracle worker."Amelia Goyri de la Hoz and her child are buried here, dated May 3, 1901. She died in childbirth, and the child survived by only an hour so he was buried at her feet. For some reason, she was exhumed a year later and teh child was found in her arms! The word spread about her love beyond the grave, and reputed to have healing powers. People come from near and far to have their wished granted by knocking three times on the tombstone using the brass handles, then lay flowers on the grave and state the wish. Finally, you must leave by walking backwards. What a funny etiquette! I didn't bother...
