Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre

Cuba is a mainly Catholic country, although the mixture of cultures and origins create a real syncretic religious panorama where African religions and Catholicism have given rise to the well-known “Santería.”

According to several studies, Santería comes from the slaves from Yoruba, in Western Africa, that were taken to Cuba during the 16th century and forced to work in the sugar mills throughout the 19th. Deprived of their culture and identity, they were cajoled into accepting Catholicism, but did so only from their own beliefs, creating this particular religious intermingling.

Besides these, you can also find Protestants such as Jehovah's Witnesses, Anglicans, Seventh Day Adventists, Methodists, and many more; in addition to Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, etc.

Mainly Catholic, Cubans have made the Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre (Virgin of the Charity of Copper) the Patron of the island, and one of the most important symbols of Cuba, with important celebrations held in her name on September 8th.
