The Cathedral of Our Lady of Remedies "Old Mello"

The Cathedral of Our Lady of Surrender known as the "Old Mello" is a temple of the sixteenth century, has a virgin who was taken to Riohacha from Cape La Vela, when the port was assaulted by the British who sought pearls. Inside the cathedral are deposited the remains of the famous independence hero Admiral José Prudencio Padilla.

The chronicles of ancient historians, that in the fifteenth century Queen Isabella wanted to evangelize these regions and sent pictures of Lady paths, under different titles. But to get the boxes to the port of Santa Marta was a providential confusion, the image of the Immaculate Conception, which was designed to Riohacha was in Santa Marta and Our Lady of Remedies, in the capital of La Guajira.

Many miracles are attributed to him, but the most famous is that a strong storm hit and totally destroyed Riohacha First Street, where the hotel now stands Arimaca, water was swallowing the city. Desperate parishioners rushed to the cathedral and took the image of the Virgin of Los Remedios, during the procession, the winds stole the gold crown worn by the Virgin and is coming soon on the beach immediately calmed the fury of the sea.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
