The yellow and gold are the colours of the necklaces worn by followers of the patroness of <strong>Cuba</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Ochun2-1437145770" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/219210/ochun2-1437145770.jpg"></p> <p> <em>A representation of Ochun</em></p> <p>   </p> <p> During the fifty years of presence of the Soviet Union in <strong>Cuba</strong>, while religions were reduced to hiding, another was spared, the most widespread. This is Santeria, midway between Catholicism and voodoo, inherited from Spanish colonization.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Very popular in <strong>Cuba</strong>, <strong>Santeria</strong> develops increasingly away from the island and especially through expatriated Cubans or mediated through Europeans, such as Jeanine Carta, a Marseillaise initiated since serveral years, a practitioner from the Canebiere.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Jeanine-1437145971" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/219211/jeanine-1437145971.jpg"></p> <p> <em>                       Jeanine Carta Marseillaise follower of Santeria</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> François Missen will take you to <strong>Morales</strong> to the exact spot where the castaways brought back the statue of the <strong>Virgin</strong>. You will also follow the pilgrimage of the villagers. All save throughout the year to make their offerings to <strong>Ochun</strong> and to assure during three days a diet based on rum and yuka.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dossier-santeria-2015_1_-4-1437148186" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/219218/dossier-SANTERIA-2015_1_-4-1437148186.jpg"></p> <p> <em> The road travelled by the faithful every September 7th</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> Every September 7th, the villagers go close to <strong>Santiago de Cuba</strong> and participate to the pilgrimage <strong>Our Lady of El Cobre</strong>, 25 kilometres from Santiago, where flows nearly a million Cubans and international followers of Santeria. Among its prestigious guests include writer <strong>Ernest Hemingway</strong>, who offered to the basilica his Nobel Prize medal, and<strong> Fidel Castro</strong>, who gave his medals from the Revolution.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Santeria-1437143033" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/219191/santeria-1437143033.jpg"></p> <p> <em>The Basilica of El Cobre</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> The last distinguished visitor in the <strong>Basilica</strong> is none other than the former Pope Benedict XVI. This year in September, Pope Francis will honour the Basilic with a visit during his official trip to South America. Each year, on 7 and 8 September a pilgrimage attracts thousands of people from the Bay of Nipe, on the Atlantic coast of Cuba to the hamlet <strong>El Cobre</strong>. In this place a basilica was built in honour of Our Lady of El Cobre, called the <strong>Basilica del Cobre</strong>. This year, Pope Francis himself will give honour with a visit to the Basilica.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dossier-santeria-2015_1_-24-1437148013" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/219217/dossier-SANTERIA-2015_1_-24-1437148013.jpg"></p> <p> <em>The interior of the Basilica del Cobre</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> This report will bring to light this mysterious and exciting religion.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBFs53aD01c" target="_blank">Teaser "For the love of Ochun" - Anglais</a></p>
