Hermitage Of Consolation.

At Cieza, located at north-west of Region of Murcia, is this hermitage.

"According to tradition, by the year 1612, an oxcart carried an image of Christ Crucified. Passing the chapel where today is located, oxes refused to walk. In 1800, during a drought, they went down the image of Christ to pray to him; when they cried because they did not getting the rain, they saw grow their spikes with a size never achieved.

In 1895, in a second day of supplication, without the slightest sign of storm, it began to rain so that the harvest was amazing. The following year he was imposed on the image the name of the Holy Christ of Consolation.

Today it remains throughout the year in the chapel, rebuilt in 1870, and only leaves a few days before Easter to participate in the processions." (Source: murciaturistica.es)
