It is reputed to be the first church dedicated to Mary in history.Local traditions take the history of this basilica to the dawn of Christianity in Spain attributing to an apparition to Saint James the Great, the apostle who is believed by tradition to have brought Christianity to the country. This is the only reported apparition of Mary to have occurred before her believed Assumption.Many of the kings of Spain, many other foreign rulers and saints have paid their devotion before this statue of Mary.
