Legend in Málaga
There is a very popular legend among the fisherman in Malaga, a city with great sea influence and where the inhabitants are very religious. It is said that a group of fishermen surprised by a storm while fishing.
Unfortunately, they were thrown into the sea and were unable to reach the shore despite their determination. With huge waves and black storm clouds, they entrusted their souls to God, thinking that it was the end, but suddenly a ray of light broke out between the wild waves and a crucified wooden cross with crucified Christ floating on the water. They came to this figure and realized that she was getting blood on one side so they bought her on the boat and then the storm subsided and managed to survive.
This Christ was taken to "Convent de la Merced", where he has since been celebrated as "the Christ of the Blood."
