According to the legend, in 1613, two brothers of native origin and a black boy of nine or ten years old, went for salt to the Nipe Bay "in the northeast coast of Cuba", and they saw under the sea the image of the Virgin Caridad del Cobre. It is also said the image was taken to the town Real of Minas, very near Santiago de Cuba, where are the largest layers of copper outdoors in America.
The neighbors received the discovery as a good signal from heaven, and built a hermitage to act as the temple of the religious idol immediately. On the side of the mine, the miners built the sanctuary, in the same place where the church that preserves the idol found under the water is placed today. That was the beginning of Cubans devotion for this image.
