  One of the favourite tombs in Necropolis Colon
by mim95

La milagrosa is the tomb of Amelia Goyre de Hoz, who died while giving birth in 1901. Legend says that her baby was initially placed near her feet, but when their bodies were exhumed, the baby was in her arms.

Her grave is among the most visited as a lot of women who came with flowers and knocked on the tomb three times for luck on child bearing.

La milagrosa is located northeast of Capilla Central, near Calle 1 and Calle F in Necropolis Cristobal Colon.
