Hiking in Badajoz 2: Nature and history near El Moral

Route to Pocito de San Juan Macías

San Juan Macías was an Extremaduran religious who was born in Ribera del Fresno in 1585 and lived much of his life in Lima, where he died.

The first miracle attributed to Juan Macías is well known in this area. It is said that while Juan was taking his flock to graze he met a boy who sadly cried in front of the mouth of a very deep well.

When Juan asked about the reason for his crying, the boy replied that one of his pigs had fallen into the well and that he was worried about reprimanding his father. Juan told him not to worry and went to the well while he kept praying to the virgin. Then the water from the well began to rise and the pig rose to the surface and was able to come out alive. Since then, “Pocito Juan Macías” has been preserved as a very special place and many pilgrims come to visit convinced that their waters are healing and miraculous.
