Every August, a pilgrimage takes place to Our Lady of Los Angeles Basilica in Cartago, where the sacred Catholic statue La Negrita is kept. People walk from all over the country—but especially the 15 miles from San José—to ask the statue for various favors and miracles. No, this isn’t a guided tour, but it’s one crazy walk.
