This procession, which gathers the largest number of believers in South America, dates back to colonial times, when a slave drew the image of a black Christ on the walls of a hut in the plantation Pachacamilla near Lima. The image remained on the wall despite several attempts to erase it. This has lead to widespread devotion image intact on the wall despite an earthquake in 1746 which leveled all surrounding buildings. As a result of this event, worship of the image to new heights in the city of Lima. The heart of the celebration is one of the largest processions in which tens of thousands of followers dressed in purple tunics, singing hymns and prayers in the accompanying image. The litter which bears the image weighs two tons and is borne on the shoulders of believers who are in procession from the church of Las Nazarenas, through the center of Lima to the church of La Merced in Barrios Altos. Around this time of year, the streets fill with vendors of a wide variety of typical dishes and sweets, such as the famous Turrón de Doña Pepa. In October to commemorate the Lord of Miracles (Señor de los Milagros), Lima hosts bullfighting season and features some major bullfighters of Spain and Latin America.
