  • Description Churches and Convents: Iglesia del Santo Cristo del Buen Viaje, Villa Clara. Cuba

    The legend says that in a gloomy rainy day in October 1600 about what the sailors called the Cordonaso San Francisco, a fisherman came remedying fishing with two friends early in the morning in a fragile vessel to the Tesic Bay, a place outside town in 1832. Offshore fishermen were caught in a storm. They were preparing to return in a hurry when they spotted amid the waves, drifting, a wooden box five feet long which powerfully struck, to the point that despite the urgency decided to pick it up, not without little effort and danger of sinking into the dark waters. Imagine the surprise when they opened it and found a beautiful image of the Virgin Mary carved in wood. "We have done a good trip, good trip," "yes good trip," repeated the other two. They agreed to name it since then Buenviaje

    The fishermen arrived Remedios town through nowadays Calle Rio which at that days was a river. At the corner lived a black man and the fishermen decided to give the virgen to this man. The next day the priest of town came at the blac mans house and told him the virgen belongs to the church and moved the wooden carved statue to Iglesia Mayor.
    Remedios Iglesia Buen Viaje

    When at the next morning the priest looked at the spot where he placed the statue it was gone ... he surprisingly found it at the black man's house, the virgin returned by herself to the house the fishermen left her in first place.

    They decided to build a second church in this place where ones was the black mans house, because the people said, The Virgen had choosen her own spot in town to live. Since that time Remedios is the only town in Cuba who has two churches at the same Plaza.
