Find a Miracle Spot in Colombia

It’s not hard to believe in miracles once you see the Sanctuario de las Lajas, an incredible feat of faith and engineering in the municipality of Ipiales in southern Colombia. Legend has it that in 1754, a woman named Maria Mueces and her deaf and mute daughter, Rosa, sought shelter from a thunderstorm in a cave in the valley of the Guáitara River, known for its flat rock formations that resemble lajas, or floor tiles.
