In recent years, a mass has been celebrated to honor La Virgen at the Hialeah racetrack. Taking all these South Florida celebrations into account, one could say that the Virgin plays an important role in the lives of many Cuban men and women who make the journey from Cuba to the free shores of the Florida coastline.

Built along a stretch of Biscayne Bay, her shrine was completed with the donations of newly arrived Cuban exiles.
