Lourdes caves

The Lourdes caves (1958) are named after the French religious cave. The caves are located in Seroe Preto (black hill).

The caves are created under the guidance of a priest named “Erkamp” and parishioners in the year 1958. A statue of the Virgin Mary, weighing 700 kilos, was hoisted into place in the cave.

February 11th is the feast of Lady of Lourdes with a procession from the St. Theresita church in San Nicolas to the caves.
