After breakfast, we will head to the city of Aparecida, where a famous Brazilian sanctuary was built in honor of Our Lady of Aparecida. The origins of the cult are intertwined with the story of fishermen, who discovered the figurine of the Divine Lady in the lake.

On July 16, 1930, the people of Brazil paid homage to Our Lady of Aparecida. It marked the solemn consecration of the Basilica and the declaration of her as a Patroness of the country.
