The history of Ours Lady Aparecida starts in 1717, when the count of Assumar, Mr. Pedro of Almeida and Portugal, governor of the Province of St. Paul and Minas Gerais, stopped in the village of Guaratinguetá, during his trip toward Vila Rica, the today’s Ouro Preto in Minas Gerais. For this occasion, three fishermen, Domingos Garcia, Filipe Pedroso and João Alves, brought the fish for the banquet and they went to fish in the river Paraíba, in a area called Porto Itaguaçu. João Alves found in his net a statue of the Virgen, but without the head. He threws his net again and found the head of the statue. Later, the three fishermen filled with fishes their nets. For 15 years the statue remained in the house of Filipe Pedroso, where the neighbors went to pray the rosary. Some people that had prayed in front of the statue, affirmed to have received some graces and the cult spread in the whole Brazil.
