Descripción del sitio
Copacabana, a holy city on the shores of Lake Titicaca, was originally sacred to the Incas and is now famed as the home of the miraculous statue of La Virgen de la Candelaria, the patron saint of Bolivia. (The more famous Copacabana in Rio was named for this one by grateful Brazilian sailors who were saved from a storm.) The sparkling white, Moorish-style basilica is home to a beloved miraculous statue of the Virgin Mary sculpted by an Inca craftsman in 1576. The Virgin of Copacabana receives pilgrims and festivals in her honor throughout the year.
