Havana, Cuba

Cementerio de Cristóbal Colón: Here is the most popular grave in Colón Cemetery. Buried here is Amelia Goyri, who died during childbirth in 1903. When the remains were to be exhumed, the bodies were found to be perfectly preserved and 'La Milagrosa' was holding her baby in her arms. Women from all over the world visit, pray, and perform the prescribed ritual at the grave site. They are then able to conceive. Thank you notes on marble slabs are displayed near the tomb. [2014]
