In the same desert that Deolinda walked alone with her son, two million people today go on pilgrimage to ask her for favours, they deliver their offerings or thank her with some sacrifice, they take litres and litres of water or they simply turn off their route for the sake of the curiosity that the site inspires. Visiting the Difunta Correa Site is an impressive experience. From the first metres in the main street, the experience takes the visitor to a colourful universo of sensations and emotions that counteract with the monotony of the landscape.
Here, the sacred and the ordinary make up a unique synthesis. Metres before the access, there is a market with numerous well-supplied stands which offer souvenirs of the Difunta Correa in different shapes and varied materials – picture cards, medals, statuettes, ribbons, magnets, candles, handicrafts and regional products. There is also a petrol station, car parks, a hotel, restaurants, bars, kiosks, barbecue facilities, bathrooms and administrative offices.
