Nuestra Señora del Quinche
The miraculous statue of Our Lady of the Presentation of Quinche, the patroness of Ecuador.
The wooden sculpture was carved in the 16th century, and has been venerated in Quinche since at least 1604. The devotion has always been popular with Ecuador’s Indian population. They affectionately refer to Our Lady of Quinche as ‘la Pequeñita’ (the Little One).
