Capilla del Cristo - Cristo Chapel

Various stories are told about events occurring during festivities in honour of San Juan Bautista (St. John the Baptist).  One story tells of a witness to tragedy that promised to build a chapel if a young man's life could be saved.  The young man had in 1753 raced down Calle Cristo and plunged over its steep precipice.   Historical records indicate that the man died, but legend says that he lived.  A second version of the story indicates that the horse miraculously stopped before plunging over the cliff.

Nonetheless, between 1634 and 1638, the chapel was dedicated to Santa Catalina and was built at the bottom of Del Cristo Street.   Inside is a small gold and silver altar dedicated to the Christ of Miracles.

Pigeon's Park is located in Old San Juan, above the City Wall, overlooking La Princesa, the San Juan Bay, next to Capilla del Cristo, this cobblestone Park is located at the end of Cristo Street.  The back wall of the park provides shelter to pigeons who nest in holes along the wall.  Beautiful large trees, whose trunks have twisted and intertwined, provide shade.

The Mystery of the Bronze Shoes

In Pigeon Park one will find bronze shoes that have been placed here and there throughout the park and firmly fixed to the ground.  There are both adult and children's shoes. Every time I return, more shoes have been added.

If someone can explain their meaning, I'd appreciate knowing by whom and why these have been placed here.  Somewhere in the dusty cobbles of my mind I recall something about the first pair being placed in memory of a small child and others, liking the memorial, began adding to them. 

Perhaps the inspiration comes from the very moving memorial found on the bank of the Danube River in Budapest?  "Shoes on the Danube Bank" was conceived and created by film director Can Togay in 2005 to remember the Jewish people killed by militiamen during World War II. The people were ordered to take off their shoes and were then shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies would fall into the river and be carried away.  The memorial represents the shoes they left behind. The plaque in Budapest reads:  "To the memory of the victims shot into the Danube by Arrow Cross militiamen in 1944-45".
