The legend says that in the canyon of the Guaitara River, in southern Colombia, an image of the Virgin Mary appeared painted in a rock. Then a church was built to cover it, on top of the river. It is a very famous sanctuary. The term “laja” refers to a type of rock, so the name means the Sanctuary of the rocks.
