La Historia - the Story Nov 02, 2013
The story goes that in the mid-seventeenth century a humble "mulato" Angolan descent, painted the crucified Christ in a weak adobe wall, within Pachacamilla midden, an area where black angolans slaves were grouped living in absolute poverty.

On November 13 - 1655, at 2:45 pm there was a terrible earthquake in Lima and Callao, crumbling churches, burying houses and leaving thousands dead damnificated, and in the area where the Christ was painted all walls unless that wall fell, the image was intact. The fact was considered miraculous by the habitants of Pachacamilla and gathered a lot of worshipers, with its songs and dances semipaganos scandalized the religious and political authorities, so the Viceroy ordered the destruction of the image when uploading a painter steps to delete it, started feeling tremors and chills and had to be treated right away to continue its work, then tried to back up but was much the impression made that got scared and walked swiftly from the place without completing the task. A second man, a Balcázars soldier, tried but got up quickly, then explaining that when he stood before the image he saw that he became more beautiful and the crown was turning green, which is why not follow the order given, at the insistence of authorities for dissappear the image, people expressed their disgust and began to protest with angry voices and threatening behavior that drove them off to the party. The order was revoked and it was agreed that there surrendered to the powerful image veneration.

On October 20 - 1687 a earthquake destroyed the Callao and Lima and demolished part of the chapel which had been erected in honor of the image of Christ, again left standing only the adobe wall with the image of Christ Crucified. This was admitted by the Church and devoted worship.

Turrón de Doña Pepa, un dulce tradicional - A traditional dessert Nov 02, 2013
In Peru and especially in Lima well as at Christmas is inevitable the Panettone, in October can not miss the Turrón and like almost all custom and tradition in my beloved city, also has its origin story.

It is said that by the end of the eighteenth century, Josefa Marmanillo began suffering paralysis in the arms, which allowed disease was freed from slavery, but also left her without the possibility of support, in such circumstances heard rumors about the miracles that performed the image of Pachacamilla Christ, traveled to Lima and so was their faith and devotion he recovered from his illness, and in gratitude, the sweet created dedicated to the Lord of Miracles. In the next exit Lord, Josefa up the turrón, offering it. Returning to Cañete, the slave claimed that Christ had watched smiling as he blessed the offering. There is also a version that Josefa brought the Turrón for first time to the procession and offered it to Pachacamilla Christ, healing to return to Cañete. However, in later years always returned to Lima to offer its Turrón in the Purple Christ processions, a tradition that continued their daughter, granddaughter, and later generations.

This candy is made ​​with butter, eggs, pinch of salt, flour and anise, which is cut in long strokes before baking, which are arranged in layers cross bathed in molasses syrup flavored with fruit, and once assembled, is coated dragees and multicolored sprinkles. Such is the dissemination of this Turrón that already there is to Guinness Record for the world's largest Turron ... course, won by Peru in 2008 and 2009.
