The altar of the Madonna del Pozzo (Our Lady of the Well) in the church of Santa Maria in Via, Rome.
The small image of Mary came to light after the overflowing of a well during the night of 26 and 27 September 1256. Pope Alexander IV had a chapel built in honour of this miraculous event. The current chapel dates from 1591 and is located to the right of the entrance to the church.
Water continues to flow from the well, which is distributed to visitors in small cups and bottles. The shrine is sometimes referred to as ‘la piccola Lourdes’, or little Lourdes.
The church of Santa Maria in Via is located close to the Via del Corso, one of Rome’s main shopping streets. It is common for shoppers to pop into the chapel to drink a cup of miraculous water and for a moment of prayer before the Madonna. It is one of those places where the love of the Roman people for Mary really becomes apparent; men and women of all ages find joy and comfort in the small miraculous image of Our Lady of the Well.

A vintage postcard of the high altar of the basilica of Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos in Jalisco, Mexico.
The city of San Juan de los Lagos has been a place of pilgrimage since the 17th century, centered around a small statue of Mary.
Legend has it that at that time a six years old trapeze artist had a fatal fall when performing one of her acts. When she was brought to the chapel for burial a woman asked her parents if she could place the small statue of Mary on the corpse. As soon as the statue touched the girl’s body she moved and sat up, miraculously brought back to life.
