The celebrations of the Virgen de la Salud in Pátzcuaro are held in our magical village in the month of December.

During those days, there are pilgrimages from all over Pátzcuaro in honor of the Virgen. These pilgrimages are accompanied by music and firecrackers, in an atmosphere of joy.

The Virgen de la Salud of Pátzcuaro is a very revered image. Daily we can see pilgrims arriving from different parts of Mexico and the world who come to visit her, to appeal for intercession by the Virgen, or to give thanks for a plea fulfilled.

Members of the large indigenous (Purépecha) community arrive on their pilgrimage from different coastal towns and the islands of the Lake Pátzcuaro, to show their fervor to the Virgen in the Basilica, where they can hear a mass in their native language.

This image so venerated dates from the 16th century, it was commissioned by Don Vasco de Quiroga in 1536 and formed from corn stalk pulp by the Purépecha. This pre-Hispanic technique involves grinding dry corn stalk, mixing it with bone marrow, and adding a paste obtained from bulbs of the orchids, producing resilient figures that last for more than five hundred years.

This image of the Virgen María was consecrated and appointed patron of health.  It was first placed in the Hospital of Santa Martha.  It was proclaimed as patroness of Pátzcuaro in 1737

In 1880, the Virgen was moved to the Sagrario, where she remained for 191 years, when she was installed at the Basilica in Pátzcuaro.

On December 8, 1899, the Virgen’s “coronation by decree” was directed by Pope León XIII.  Since then, this has been the day when the Virgen de la Salud is celebrated in Pátzcuaro.

The Virgen makes a tour through the main streets of Pátzcuaro on this day. Houses are decorated in white and blue.  Iturbe Street is festively adorned with a carpet of colored sawdust, and thus the Virgen de la Salud makes her grand entrance into the Plaza Vasco de Quiroga.
