    Symbol of Motherly love

    "The miraculous one" is the tomb of Amelia
    Goyri de la Hoz who died in childbirth in 1901
    In keeping with the customs of the time she and her child were buried together.
    According to the legend - a few years later the tomb was opened - the mother was intact.
    It was a miracle - she became the symbol of motherly love.
