The second day of August of each year there is a pilgrimage to the Basilica of the Virgin of the Angels, from multiple places in Costa Rica. The virgin in known popularly by “la negrita” (the Little Black Girl) and she appeared near the borough of La Gotera, the place of settlement of free Blacks, mulattos and pardos. However, in our days in the collective imagery the cult to the Virgin is not associated with people of African descent, but with the indigenous population.
