Church

FDon Jose Ulloa, with money raised from donations, built a chapel in the front garden of his house where he placed the beautiful image of the Virgin.With the weather began to increase the number of visitors to the Virgin, so that Mr. Ulloa considered necessary to enable as a storehouse of adobe chapel was in the days of Don Vicente Vasquez, former owner.and bordering the garden of his home. Driven by the growing enthusiasm of popular devotion that I saw around the image of the Immaculate Conception, also sought a priest to officiate in the Chapel and to guide the devotion.

In the parish registers of baptisms Casablanca are the first made by the priest Don José Manuel León Vásquez What's Chapel in 1849.

At present, the numbers of parishioners who congregate on the day of the Immaculate in Lo Vásquez, exceed 600,000 people, becoming the most important Marian pilgrimage in the country with the participation of many institutions.
