St Roch’s Cemetary of Body Parts


  
  
 St Roch was the patron of good health and was called upon in 1867 & 1878 to protect the locals from yellow fever. No one died so the priest at the time pledged to build a chapel in the Saints honour. People still come to ask for help. Another custom was the local girls visiting the shrine on Good Friday to ensure they had a husband before the year was out .
