Santa Nino de Atocha, Plateros
Tuesday July 15th, 2014

Rode an hour north of Zacatecas to the pilgramidge church of Plateros. Site of a 16th century silver mine and a miracle working statue of Santo Nino de Atocha. Here the colonnade and part of an interior courtyard are covered with paintings depicting some misfortune or other, and asking for help. In each painting the Nino de Atocha is usually hovering nearby. Lots of food stalls and milagro sellers surround the church.
