Alcuni fedeli di san Lazzaro a Cuba. Festa che ricorre il 17 dicembre. San Lazzaro gode di una profonda e vastissima devozione popolare. I cubani gli attribuiscono molti miracoli e il suo appellativo è “milagroso san Lázaro”, il miracoloso san Lazzaro. I pellegrini si recano a piedi, in ginocchio, in macchina, con ogni mezzo verso il santuario El Rincon, vicino Santiago de las Vegas. Il santo cattolico è anche conosciuto come la divinità afro‒cubana Yoruba e porta il nome di Babalu‒Aye. È il protettore dei malati e restano tracce di sincretismo con le religioni indigene cubane.
